Switching desktop environments, easily?

Is there an easy way to just log out of "x" and switch to say gnome from kde, or to fluxbox without editing files every time?

I did that.. I use the graphical login.. but you should consider opening up some more text terminals in inittab.. it gets lonely without them.
