switching from KDE to Gnome in Mandriva

I need a way to do this. I'm running Mandriva 2008 Powerpack with a KDE desktop. I want to switch to Gnome, but I didn't install it with Mandriva. I need to know where to get the gnome installation files, or if I can install it through urpmi, or if I can install it from my Mandriva DVD somehow. I also need to know how to switch to it. Can anybody help me with this?
