Switching from Gnome to KDE in suse

Ok, I recently installed SuSE 10.0 with Gnome as the default desk top and am absolutly loving it. However I would like to try KDE. SO in YAST i checked to see if it was installed, now I'm no expert but it seemed that it was installed. SO like I've done with every other distrobution, I logged out and went into the Sessions menu to switch. and low and bejold, it had several othe window managers that and don't want, and it also didn't have KDE listed. SO how to I put it there so that i can swich and try it out?... oh and also wile I'm here, how do I stop appletts from loding at start up? It automaticly loads the network monitor, suse update thing, and the resolution swicher, and no matter how many I exit them and say don't reload at start up they just keep comeing back...... thanx

Go into yast, then select Software > Software Management. Under the filter drop-down box, select Selection and place a check mark where it says "KDE Desktop Environment."

It's a lot of clicking but it's easy to do. Save your changes, log all the way out, restart.
