Excuse me, but there's no need for insults. You know perfectly well that I'm a 
professional sysadmin, and that I've been here for years.

It's a Netbook. I yum groupinstalled xfce, created an /etc/sysconfig/desktop, 
added a line in /etc/X11/prefdm to include xfce, copying one of the other 
lines, and rebooted. It came in in runlevel 5, no login.

In other words, what I'd do with any other display manager.
