you can change/make a file in your /home/user directory known as .xinitrc and change it from
exec gnome-session

to

exec kde

xwmconfig I already ran at install, ran it again and nothing changed.

I can't even find the user DIRECTORY in /home, much less an xinitrc file.

xinitrc file is a hidden file its .xinitrc in ur /home/user ..... Open ur home dirtectory ---click on view then scroll down till you see ---- show hidden files ur .xinitrc file should be seen now..................................................................N running xwmconfig lets you pick ur window enviroment, You should see a list of Xwindow enviroments kde, gnome, twm N etc. Jus use ur arrow button to scroll up and pick kde as ur (default) its should be highlighted when you pick it, then check ok..... Restart X with ctrl+alt + backspace.............................. to restart ur Xwindow session.

usually on the graphics logon for xorg at runlevel 4 has a dropdown menu for which session you'd like to start (kde, gnome, fvwm...)
