Just an update on the situation, I can only run both
desktops as root.  Here is what is in the home
directory of both regular users
[root localhost olivares]# ls
Desktop       KDE.startkde.bM7828  KDE.startkde.uc5936
 tmp
Documents     KDE.startkde.Ku7072  KDE.startkde.VG6611
j2re1.4.2_06  KDE.startkde.Ra5609  netbeans-4.0
jdk1.5.0_01   KDE.startkde.Tq5518  pppd.txt
[root localhost share]# cd xsessions/
[root localhost xsessions]# ls
gnome.desktop  kde.desktop  xfce.desktop
[root localhost xsessions]#
