Changing desktops (KDE -> Gnome on Suse 9.1)


I'm very new to Linux. I would like to be able to change my desktop from KDE (default or standard) to Gnome, just to see the diffrences.
But I don't know how and I cann't find it in the manuals.
Can anybody tell me how to do it and so that changing (to and from) is easy?

Thanks in advance

" I would like to be able to change my desktop from KDE (default or standard) to Gnome"

At the KDM login screen (the default login screen in SuSE 9.1) click on Menu -> Session type -> GNOME

If Gnome is not on the list of session types then you will have to install gnome, probably by using YaST.
