switching desktop environments


I just today installed Slackware 9.0. The distro I used before Slackware was RH 6.1. I used Gnome all the time, but when i installed slackware it defaulted or something to KDE. I chose the option to have both KDE and Gnome installed, so i know that i have them both.

My question is, how do i switch from KDE to Gnome? Where in KDE does it have the setting for the switch because i can not find it?

If this gets answered, i probably won't be able to post a followup until tomorrow.

Thanks,
Wes

BTW, i remember it asking me which one i wanted to use when i first started xwindows. But maybe i just looked over Gnome when I had to select which one.
