Right. However, switching desktops does not have anything to do with
switching display managers. The former provide the desktop UI; the latter
provide a graphical login manager. One can use a KDE desktop with the
GDM display manager or vice-versa. The choice of display manager does
not necessarily dictate one's window manager or desktop environment.
More to the point, the original poster was asking how to switch from 
GDM to KDM.
