Switching from kde to gnome

I want to try out some other GUIs. I currently have KDE up and running, but i do believe i chose the option to install both GNOME and KDE. How would i go about switching? I also wish to try some others like Fluxbox. Would the process work the same?

Just log out and then log back in and change the windows environment during the log in. You can then select to make that your default or not.
