KDE, Gnome Choice


Hi all, bit of a n00b here so i'll do my best to discribe my problem and eliminate any possibilites that I might have taked care of already.
I have Suse 9.1 pro, and with yast I have loaded Gnome, now I remeber somewhere that I could change my GUI upon next boot but I can't remember where. Someone told me that on the splash screen (loading screen) I should have a choice wether I would like to use Gnome or KDE, I havbe looked all over that splash screen and have not found any choice.
Any ideas?
I just thought of it right now, but I'm going to change my splash screen......

When you go to login, choose "sessions" and then pick GNOME.

If the system is setup to auto-login, you might not be seeing the welcome screen. Just log out (or end current session as the case may be), not reboot or shutdown and you shoud see the sessions option on the log in screen.

Thanks for the responses everyone, I did log out the current session and then it gave me a choice to run Gnone. It was acting weird though, I tried to run YaST and as usual it asked for the SU password, I typed it in and then it took fooooorver to "try" to load and it came back saying that it timed out while trying to send the SU password. Anyone see something like that before? I was checking around because I remember seeing something where you can change the timeouts duration of certain applications.
However, I am impressed with how fast Gnome runs, it seems like I have just doubled my speed when starting other applications or surfing the web

Especially now they have an installer! Last time I installed it I wrote a script to install all of the components.
