Well, we're trying to lower the system requirements for this spin as
much as possible, since we got several requests to make it boot on
machines with 256 RAM.
GDM is known to pull in quite some Gnome-related dependencies, which we
don't really need (since I tried to completely exclude Gnome). So we
discussed the use of slim instead of gdm and thanks to Marco's work,
we're for now including slim.

I've now synced it against the latest desktop ks from our
spin-kickstarts pool and uploaded new version at the same place.
Thanks for all your feedback!
