If you want to make a pertinent selection, you can set it in
/etc/sysconfig/desktop. You may have to create the file.

DESKTOP=GNOME
DESKTOP=KDE

When you log in, there should be a dropdown box that will let you
select what desktop to use. On my machine it is at the bottom of the
screen. But I don't remember if I am using the default settings for
GDM. (It is also different if using KDM or XDM.)

There is also a program called switchdesk that will let a user set
their preferred desktop. (You may have to install it.)
