Question XFree and Kde

Well, I just updated my Xfree server (cuz I broke something in playing too deep n my old one) but now I have a little annoying problem.
I'm using Slackware so I have to type a command to start X.

The command is pretty simple : startx
before I did my Xfree update, startx was starting my Kde directly.

Now when I type startx I get a green and ugly windows manager. I suppose I assume it's the real Xfree GUI but It just too green for me, hehehe.

I already found the command I have to type in the bash in this Xfree to get my kde running (kde-session) but It's really annoying to have this green GUI controling my KDE and to see the taskbar of this Xfree Gui . And I guess it eat me twice more ressource than having just kde running.

So my question is "What I have to do/type to start my kde directly, or what can I edit to make my kde start directly when I type startx ?"

Thanx to all

The easy way: type xwmconfig as the user you wish to change the window manager for.

The less as easy way but not bad: edit your ~/.xinit and change the exec whatever to startkde.
