switching back to kde


hi,
i have recently installed mdk10 and have been loving it. ive been using kde... up untill yeasterday when i thaught i would try icewm... just to see what it is like. i got to it by going to the start menu thing(sorry i use windows too :P)and going start new session or whatever it says and choosing icewm. now the problem is, whenever i boot up my comp in linux now it boots in ice wm. and if i go to the session bit in icewm it doesnt show kde. so how can i get back to kde??? i tried starting a new cli session and typing startkde and it came up with a bunch of errors and warnings and crap.

if anyone could help it would be great.... cause im just learning and ive learnt a bit using kde and i wouldnt want that to have been a waste of time.

thanks,
travis
