I have managed to get the hostname thing kind of sorted. I found out that the 
localnet script wasn't being run at startup. I created a link in rc3.d to 
point to it and called it S10localnet. I doubt that is the correct way to do 
it as the lfs-bootscript package doesn't seem to do this.

Anyway, kde now starts up pretty quickly but I still have the same problem 
with kdm (xdm works ok though). I'll attach my kdmrc so any help would be 
greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Paul.
