Actually I just posted that to the other thread regarding switchdesk, before I saw this one.
rpm -ql switchdesk

copy the .Xclients.kde file to ~/.Xclients-default.

And, if you'd like to change the default for all users on the system, in case you create new ones....

$-> cat /etc/sysconfig/desktop

change to "KDE"

No one now has, and no one will ever again get, the big picture. - Daniel Geer

default, kde, set
