There's a bar at the bottom of the screen in gdm's login screen. In the 
middle there's a combo box to select the session type (after typing the 
user name, before entering the password). At least, that's how I 
remember it, I've seen  this screen just once when I first booted after 
installing F10, then I changed the login manager to kdm.

You need to restart X only. CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE should be enough.
