1. Are you using KDM? If so, you make your choice at the login menu.
2. If not above, edit .xinitrc and comment out one IE:

exec startkde
#exec startxfce4
#exec startfluxbox

In the above example, KDE starts after entering startx

#exec startkde
#exec startxfce4
#exec startfluxbox

In the above example, Gnome starts ater entering startx
