Set KDE as default system session


I am running CentOS 4.2 with both Gnome and KDE installed on the same machine. How can I set KDE to be the default session? Right now if I just logged in it would log me into Gnome.

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

You can run "switchdesk KDE" as a normal user but this only changes it for that particular user. To change it system wide, edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop and change
Code:
DESKTOP="GNOME"
to
Code:
DESKTOP="KDE"
