How to migrate to KDE

I've installed the default Fedora 10 Gnome but would like to be able to choose between KDE and Gnome; or totally switch over to KDE.

Is it possible or do I need to reinstall?

Yes, just install the kde packages, and that will give you the choice to start into KDE or GNOME. They share the same applications, so some of the icons may look messed up. But that's it.

good luck,

Also important to note is that:

When you are on the log-on screen, choose Menu, then Session Type
