More dumb questions

I just installed rh9 and I am unclear whether I actually have kde or gnome. How can I tell if these are installed on my system?

The reason I ask is because I have set up vnc with this box from a winxphome box and I would like to start the desktop environment from the command line within vnc.

Right now I can't do this with kdestart or startkde or start kde or kde start

why dont you check your .xsession file or .xinit and see what's written on them. if you wish to run gnome from the command line, make sure that you have "exec gnome-session" on either of the files above. then invoke startx.
