Well, KDM runs as root, so usually root's KDE settings are relevant, but 
stock KDE doesn't have touchpad settings. We have kcm_touchpad which is 
being packaged, but the way its settings are loaded at startup probably only 
works for real KDE sessions, not KDM's minimal environment. (GDM runs an 
almost complete GNOME these days, they even run a window manager inside GDM! 
KDM has a much less bloated design.)

Systemwide HAL FDI files will definitely work to set touchpad options for 
KDM.
