switching desktop environments

I recently installed suse 9.1 personal. As it turns out, I think I somehow allowed it to whip out my Rh 7.3. Kind of a bummer. They are on two seperate harddrives, but that is a discussion for another time.

Does anyone know how to switch the desktop environ in suse 9.1 personal? KDE is the default but I would like to see what Gnome can do. It was very simple in RH but I can not seem to figure it out in suse.

Also, Kaffeine always opens at start up. This just started recently. How can I stop this?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
