X and different desktop environments

How can I make X starts with a specified Desktop Environment? For example I have an Slackware 9.1 system witch normally starts with KDE at the "startx" command but what if I want to start GNOME or FluxBox?
If I set it to start in X mode I could select what Desktop Environment to use and I had selected GNOME and made it default. I couldn't find out where it saves the information to know what DE to load.
Could someone help me?

P.S. Does someone know how could I change colors for bash in console mode?

Under slackware there is "xwmconfig", invoke from shell. It's great
