as far as I know, there is no such kdm startup script in Fedora.
There is only a wrapper script that chooses between gdm, kdm and xdm and 
runs it without specific options.

I already noticed that, on a dual screen Centos 6 computer, KDM starts 
in single screen mode (but with correct resolution), then TDE session 
starts in single screen too, and I must activate the 2nd screen via 
When using GDM, the login screen is immediatly in dual screen, and the 
TDE session too, I have nothing to do.

So I think there is something to configure in KDM (in kdmrc file maybe 
?) but I don't think it is distribution specific.
