Cool installing KDE

I have reinstalled Fedora 5 three times foe various reasons. Each time I have checked the box to install KDE and Gnome and each time it has only installed Gnome. What am I doing wrong? Is there anyway to install KDE after the initiial installation?

I tried to reinstall the KDE base files and it told me that it was already installed. So perhaps I just need to know how to start KDE. There is no spot on the gnome gui menu to switch to the KDE desktop. I tried typing kde in terminal mode and it said command not found. What am I missing here

On the login screen, there should be the word "Session" (going from memory). Click it and change your desktop there.
