WMs from the console

How would i start different WMs from the console. An example would be, typeing 'startkde' would start both XFree86 and KDE. By default on my machine, KDE starts when i run 'startx'. I just removed gdm for other reasons, so how would i change the default WM for startx. Or, what commands can i use to start different WMs, such as:
while in console. Thank you in advance
