n00bie here used KNOPPIX to install a nice, ignorant-friendly (<-- really, now THAT should be the proper term, no?
) linux on my hd.
Thing is, I've gotten over the initial rush and now find KDE a little too heavy for my ram-weak system (96mb - combined with a cyrix PII clone processor @ 233mhz). So now I want to switch over to xfce4.
I've gone ahead and downloaded Debian's synaptic app (seems pretty cool), and installed xfce4 with it. Now before I click the switch and potentially blow my system to smithereens I want to know:
1) Should I now just use synaptic to uninstall KDE? (is it really this simple?)
2) How do I get my system to use xfce4 now? Will it on boot kick the gui up on its own (as KDE seemed to), or do i need to type "startx" or something at some point?
3) Any sort of tricky not-obvious-to-a-total-n00b stuff I need to be aware of?
