Gnome is my default WM, but want KDE instead...


I have Fedora Core 2 with both Gnome and KDE installed. By default, Gnome loads at startup, but I have the option to choose KDE instead. After looking them both over, I really enjoy KDE. It seems to have much more useful programs that come with it. Anyway, I'm sure the Gnome fans out there would argue with that. I would love to hear both sides! Wait...this isnt the point of my posting. What I really want is to set KDE as my default. How can I go about doing this? Thanks again in advance!!

Not that I would want to do it the long way, but out of curiosity, where is it in the menu? Just curious! This command line stuff is the way the go!
