GUI Problem with SuSE 8.2

This may sound simple, but to me it is a very aggravating problem.

On SuSE 8.2 running KDE 3.1 I enabled the auto-login feature so that everytime the OS boots, it goes directly to my previous session GUI (usually for me this is KDE). But while trying out the various GUIs availible for SuSE I came across one that was very plain (black and white pixel background) with no features, except for two menus that are accessible using the mouse buttons. Unfortunately there is no logoff feature for this GUI so I do not have the ability to logoff and change my default GUI. Is there any way around this problem? I really hate using the one I'm stuck with right now. Sorry for not having the name, but I know the GUI is not KDE, Gnome, Windowmaker, or Iceworm (or something like that). Can anybody help? Thanks.

from the unknown-gui (!) menu try to find how to run an application. or anyhow, open a terminal window (xterm, konsole--anything). then run "kcontrol", this will open kde control center. look for "login manager" (you will find it in System menu perhaps), rest is easy.

Thanks, krussell. That certainly did the trick.
