Newbie issues installing switchdesk.



Hey! I'm a bit new to Linux - run Ubuntu at home and at school FC8. In class trying to get fedora core to switch from GNOME to KDE using switch desk 

I receive this: 
switchdesk KDE
bash: switchdesk: command not found

So I attempted an install. 

yum install switchdesk
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package switchdesk available.
Nothing to do

Again - I'm very new so I saw this suggestion and decided to try it - not sure of the difference. 

yum -y install switchdesk
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package switchdesk available.
Nothing to do

Really, I'm not sure what groupinstall does but that gives me:
Warning: Group switchdesk does not exist.
No packages in any requested group available to install or update

((I had used it on a classmates computer and he was able to get to KDE - I guess I'm not so lucky))

Really, I'm not sure where to go from here, every attempt of installation or moving on results in a missing dependency or  something just not existing. 

Any ideas?
