Please, Please, PLEASE stick with GDM and do not go to LXDM. GDM supports changing the language/locale on a session-by-session basis. LXDM does not.

If you want to have a choice between starting in LXDE or other options (including simply Openbox) then it's important not to use LXDM, as it has a bug (still exists at December 2010) which interferes with sessions other than LXDE.
This is from the link given above.
sorry to bump and old thread but this bug has been fixed in the current version of LXDM available from slackbuilds

And what about the new DM of Ubuntu : Light DM ? Or an improved XDM ?

It needs PAM, so it's out, at least until slackware introduces PAM, if ever.
