Mandrake 10 - Help me!!!

When I installed, I set IceWM as default because I didn't know what else to do. So, when I found I didn't like it, I logged out and it brought me to a screen where I got to choose. So that worked for about a week. But I rebooted yesterday, and now instead of taking me to that same login screen whenever I log out, it is a more primitive and ugly login screen that just asks for a username and password. So I got in the terminal and typed start kde. And it started KDE...What happened wasn't what I expected though. I have my KDE taskbar at the top as usual, with KDE desktop icons and my KDE background. And I have my IceWM taskbar at the bottom (at the same time) and all the windows have the format of IceWM rather than my KDE setup. So, here are my questions:

A) How can I get only one to run at a time?
B) How can I make KDE my default?
C) How can I uninstall all the others, I only need one?

I would be really appreciative if someone could answer me via AIM, MSN, YIM, or if necisarry this forum (although I have more questions to follow so I'd prefer a live chat, lol)
