Can't get GDM to work after switch from KDE/KDM to Gnome/GDM

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

When I start up it boots into GDM but goes to failsafe with a single terminal and that is it.  I would then go to init 3 and startx from there.  Goes to Gnome.  I open a terminal and use gdmsetup and get that another login manager is starting a boot up.  I changed .xinitrc and inittab to point to gnome and gdm but nothing.  What am I missing.  KDE is uninstalled, is it possible the kdm didn't uninstall.
help please
