I just started using Linux (SuSe Pro 9.3 with the GNOME desktop) and I
want to chage to the KDE desktop. Unable to find anything about changing,
I tried installind KDE and then did the update. The closing prompt was to
reboot the system and I assumed this would load the new/changed desktop
but nothing had changed and I can't find anything about how to get my
system to start with KDE rather than GNOME. Surely I don't have to do a
complete reinstallation of the entire Linux OS, do I? Any help would be
