Glad to hear it worked for you.  I don't believe X itself (or kdm) looks
anywhere on startup.  There's a script that does so, but I don't
remember where it is.  Regardless, keeping it in /home actually works
better, for me at least.  My machine is single-user, but I reinstall
often and keep the same home partition.
