thanks for help/replies
startkde, is not available on this system, because on this machine only GNOME is installed.
one more thing when I ran "yast", I got the following error
warning: the ncurses frontend is installed but does not work
You need to install yast2-ncurses to use the YaST2 text mode interface
I have yast2-ncurses installed
# rpm -q yast2-ncurses
