You can easily switch from one to the other. I usually install both KDE
and Gnome as there are packages I like in both.
Depending on how you start X, you can toggle between the two.
kdm gives you the option of choosing the session type: Gnome, KDE and
many others, depending on what you have installed. I think this is the
easiest way to do it.
If you're starting X via startx, then it's a bit more complex, as you'd
have to configure the init files.
Does X start automagically when you boot?
