Cannot change the Welcome message on the Login Screen

http://forums.opensuse.org – Using Yast2 I have been able to change the login screen from the default SUSE theme to the "circles" theme. I would like to change the welcome message from "Welcome to 'hostname'" to something more inviting, say: "A Warm Welcome to OpenSuse Linux". Using Yast I clicked "System" then "/etc/sysconfig config" to bring up Yast 2. Then under "Desktop" / "Display Manager" I typed the new string into the 2 KDM_Greetstring settings that change /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager and /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager.original respectively. I also put the new string into /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc. Nothing has changed. I still get "Welcome to 'hostname'" on the login screen. Does anyone please know what is overriding the setting in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager? Which file is being read instead? Thanks. (Distributions)
