How do I change my X Windows GUI?

Right now I am using fluxbox and am pretty happy with it, but it doesn't seem to have much to it.

I want to know what file I can edit or what command to run to change to say gnome or kde.

try the command "xwmconfig"
it will list the currently installed window managers and desktop environments. just pick the one you want, then "startx" and enjoy.
