Assuming you have KDE installed then the choice between Gnome
and KDE will be in one of the login pull down menus
I haven't got the Gnome Display Manager on any of my machines
and so can't tell you exactly

If you wish to set the login window to KDM then
just create /etc/sysconfig/desktop with gedit or some other editor and
add the single line (with a RETURN char)

DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"
