Default window session

Hey Everyone,

I just made the jump to Linux (FC3) and I am having a great time with it, there is a lot to learn. My question though. How do I make KDE my default window session when I login, instead of Gnome?

Thanks for any help,

open a console as a simple user and type:
switchdesk KDE
But keep in mind that redhat/fedora hate KDE
Gnome is better configured

u can do it thorough gui too
go to preferences and then more preferences and select desktop switching tool and then select KDE.
And yes Gnome is more configurable in fedora than is KDE.
