how do I make KDE my default desktop

Hi All,

How can I make KDE my default desktop in FC3. I have read a thread about it somewhere, but now can't find it. I still want the options when I get to my logon screen, but want KDE to be default instead of Gnome

Do "switchdesk kde" in a terminal as a normal user.

EDIT /etc/sysconfig/desktop

Default Login to KDE: Fedora by default makes everyone login to Gnome.
If you prefer everyone to login to KDE by default.
