Hi =)
Hmmm, if everything is greyed-out so you can't change it? This sounds
like KControl does not know you are root when you do this. Did you start
X as root?

If you are running X as your normal user and do `kcmshell kdm' in a
terminal you will get the KDM configuration module. As your normal user
everything would be greyed-out.

Oh, I just use `startx' and variations on that (e.g. startx BB). This
starts X with BlackBox on my system. I configured it to do this. This
is not a default of course.
