Gnome to KDE under Red Hat

I installed my first linux distro (red hat 9) about a month ago... been playing around with it... and it is starting to treat me well.... anyway.. in the red hat 9 installation I choose to use Gnome as my default GUI and redhat starts that baby up when it starts up... but I am pretty sure I also installed KDE .... cause I wanted to try them both out...

My problem is I don't know how to switch it over.... how can I load up KDE and not Gnome when redhat starts up....

There should be a button on the bottom of your screen at the GUI login called 'Sessions' click that and you should be able to choose KDE (provided you installed it) and a multitude of other WM's (once again, provided you installed them). Then you can set it to boot from the last one automatically allowing you to futz around with many of them.
