Newbie question - How to switch from gnome to kde (and back)?

Is there an easy way to choose (especially at login time, which desktop to use?

Ah yes, thanks for that. The word 'session' didn't make me think that is was a desktop switcher. I see how it works now...

Thanks. The popup help at login mentioned a tool to do that, but I could not find it on the menus.
