What distro are you using?

Basically you look in a file called 'inittab' in /etc and change the default runlevel to 5 instead of 3....

But depending on your distribution (which you didn't mention) there may be an easier way (like the Mandrake Control Center in Mandrake for example).

Unless the question is how to change from one graphical login to another? Come on, Nightwolf, a little more information would be really helpful.
