    KDE should ask you if you want to set it as the default desktop....
    (When you login to KDE)

    My guess is you havent even got it installed, fire up your package installer tool and install it from cd...

    xwmconfig will allow you to select your default environment, if it's installed it will be on the selection list

    Which distro are you running?
    Not all distros manage this in the same way.

    And do you already have it installed?

    This topic is over a year old, but just for anyone interested this should work for pretty much everything.
    Code:
    echo startkde > ~/.xinitrc
