You can edit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc to change from kde to gnome.

Well, IMO, if your using the nvidia drivers it's better to login to the console and run startx anyway.

Change the last line from 'skartkde' to 'exec gnome-session'.
I think RH also has an app called 'switchdesk', you might want to check that out.
