So your trying to switch from 1 to the other? When you log in, there should be a button called "Session" you click on that and you should be able to switch from kde to gnome or vice versa. If not post back and we will get it worked out for you.

There should aslo be a setting when logged in to be able to choose a default desktop.

If you get a text based login instead of the graphical one,type startx at the console to startup your desktop.
