Install Gnome and when the installation is done log out of your session then log back in and in the session selector during the log in stage choose Gnome

Good luck to you

It may be obvious, but--to find gnome (or any other package), use the package manager.

Personal opinion: You might **think** you want gnome 3---personally, I cannot stand it. If you don't like KDE, consider trying XFCE

According to distrowatch, gnome is the default DE for F-17:

Fedora is actually available in KDE, Xfce, and LXDE so I am assuming OP installed the one with KDE and now he wants to try Gnome. Which is possible to do without having to re install the OS, just the DE.

Look in the package manger for the Gnome desktop: I think the command to install is
yum groupinstall "Gnome desktop environment"
but you can check with
yum grouplist

If you want to get rid of KDE later, then I think it's
yum groupremove "KDE desktop"
but you need to check that too. If you remove KDE, you MUST do
yum install gdm
otherwise you won't be able to log-in; the gdm package is in both groups, so it's lost when you remove KDE.
