Setting KDE as Default Window Manager

I just installed Redhat 9 and it didnt allow me to choose my default window manager. Right now I'm stuck with GNOME, but I want to make it KDE. What file would I change in RH 9 to make KDE my default window manager? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Usually you can make kde your default from the login screen. Choose a kde session and it will prompt you if you want to make kde your default. Redhat 8 does anyway....

Also, putting 'exec kde' in your ~/.xinitrc file should have the same effect.
