You have to log out, change your prefered desktop on the login panel, then log in again.
You can not have them both running at the same time, (he said, just waiting to be conradicted).

Or you can stay logged in and go to CONFIGURE COMPUTER (Mandrakelinux Control Center) and choose BOOT then AUTOLOGIN and change the default desktop.

Then reboot.

If you set up your user at installation to log in automatically, you will not get the boot screen which asks you which desktop environment you want to use. Turn off autologin and you can decide which environment to use each time you log in.
