Check this: http://www.kde.org/documentation/faq/install.html
Also there's a file named 'default-display-manager' in /etc/X11 and you should alter it like this:
/usr/bin/kdm
But that's in Debian, I'm not sure in FC1.

In Fedora you have
Code:
switchdesk kde
.
This will turn your WM permanently for the user that runs this command.
If you don't have "switchdesk" installed get it from here.
Code:
rpm -Uhv switchdesk-3.9.8-18.i386.rpm
Good luck!
Boby
