My primary OS is Windows 7. I used Fedora for a while on my old computer, but my new one is fast enough I don't see any boost from using Fedora.

I can't yet comment on the main question, so I'll clarify here. Editing the hosts file will prevent you from getting the updates, but not forever. You can easily re-enable the updates by deleting or commenting out the lines setting the hosts to 0.0.0.0. This will make your computer go back to asking the DNS server for the IP addresses.

I realized that, which is why I pointed out an alternate method of only installing KDM. When I did it on my computer, it was before I knew enough to be able to set the theme from a file, so I thought I needed KDE to change it.

What are the benefits of using .xinit over a display manager?

Oh, oops. Guess I'll look up the apt commands and fix my answer :D

Alternatively, you can instead run sudo apt-get install kdm, then download a theme, unpack it, move it to /usr/share/apps/kdm/themes/, then edit /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc to make the line Theme=(themepath) point to the new theme. I haven't done this, but it should work. I wish I had done it that way, as then I wouldn't have to go through and get rid of all the KDE applications -.-
