Installed Fedora Core 10 with KDE live disk... how do I install Gnome properly?

I'd like to have both on my system to try out but I don't want to delete my OS to download and install the install DVD... did I pooch the screw here?

Go to the menu and click on 'Add/remove software' and choose Gnome. Then next time before you log in with your username and password click on 'session' at the bottom of the screen and you'll be able to choose whether to log in to KDE or Gnome.

Lightbulb Alternative Package Installers

What I've found that to be more user friendly is Kyum & Yumex. Both are GUI front-ends for software installation.
Yumex is the most useful by sub-categorizing desktop, game, system etc. software packages.
