Hello windstory,

there is a file named .xinitrc in your homedirectory, you should edit it and insert an entry
Code:
startkde

But this is a Slackware tool as far as I know, it is not independent of the distribution. The OP is using Scientific Linux which is a RedHat fork.

I don't think xwmconfig does any slackware-only thing. It's surely a frontend to edit ~/.xinitrc (or /etc/X11/Xsession, in case its scope is global).
