Hi, ALL,
I have a PC with GNOME2 installed.
I need to install KDE4 on the same machine and be able to choose what to load at startup.

Installing is easy, but how to configure this "dual-boot" environment?

Thank you.

You can do that with a login manager like GDM.

Abraxas,
So, all I need is to install GDM and that's it? No extra configuration?

Thank you.

You can actually use GDM, KDM, LXDM or slim with no extra configuration. They only catch is that some options like switch user may not be available with some login managers.
