How to switch from KDE to Gnome

Just did the net-install of Freerock Gnome and got the message it was installed succesfully. My question is, how do I start Gnome, when powering on or rebooting I have to type "startx" and KDE will start. How do I switch window managers ? I know I have KDE, Gnome and xfce installed.

At the command prompt type xwmconfig

Then all of your DEs will appear and you can choose the one you want.
