Disable kdm for local displays


I'm installing debian 4.0 and KDE3.5 on a server and I would like to configure kdm to serve remote logins (with xdmcp) but not run on the local display. How can I configure it?
On the previous versions, it was possible through removing a line from /etc/X11/Xservers file but now it seems that this file is missing.

the line u mentioned is now located in:

and the we need to modify line is:

just commenting this out won't work because it defaults to ":0"
so just remove everything after the = so the line reads like:

ALSO you should comment this line out, because there is no terminal needed for the session anymore:

hope this helps at least a few people ;)

would have edited, but gives php-error Oo

...the lines i mentioned are in section [general] and should locate somewhere around line 63-73 (...if you use the default kdmrc...)
