Question,  if one is running redhat and gnome desktop, can one just
remove gnome and put in kde without losing all the setup parameters on
the system or reinstalling the whole os?  I seem to see many folks here
and elsewhere liking kde better than gnome and would like to try it.

Thank you
Walter Sams
