It reads your .xinitrc file. At its simplist this can contain the single line:

exec windowmanager

where windowmanager is your wm of choice, e.g.:
startkde
startxfce4
gnome-session
fluxbox
blackbox
etc

Here's some examples

Switch to another desktop without closing KDE: For example fluxbox
Ctrl Alt F2
startx `which startfluxbox` -- :2

Exit fluxbox before pressing Ctrl Alt F7 to get back into KDE

Start another instance of KDE: startx -- :2

Start another Xsession without closing present Xsession: gdmflexiserver

Restart the Xserver with the keys: Ctrl Alt Backspace
