how to start kde3

I have Redhat 7.3 so I suppose I have KDE3 as well. I used to have redhat 7.2, but I updated. I been running windowmaker for ages and I don't have a gui login. So how would I start KDE3 from the console?

This works for me:


But then again, my KDE3 CD was independent of my distro.
