I'd suggest trying KDM, which can actually be configured.

su -
yum install kdebase-workspace
echo 'DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"' >/etc/sysconfig/desktop
reboot

(That's really "KDE" there, not "KDM".)
If you want to make sure GNOME is the default desktop, you can add:
echo 'DESKTOP="GNOME"' >>/etc/sysconfig/desktop
Likewise, DESKTOP="KDE" makes KDE the systemwide default.

Then you can set up KDM through systemsettings (the KDE configuration tool).

You may lose some GNOME integration though (e.g. fast user switching),
because obviously KDM was primarily designed for KDE.
