    Switching Graphical Desktops


    Hi every1!!
    COuld some1 help me? i'm new to linux and i want to change from gnome to kde. i had problems installing so i don't remember exactly what happened during the installation cause my disc 1 was corrupt and i have 2 keep starting over. anyway in one of the installations it said instert disc 4 but i downloaded the 3 disc set. does that mean that kde isn't included or is it just on another disc. also do i have 2 uninstall gnome first. something strange happened so i can only se half of my hard drive 2.? gigs of 4 so i have only 200megs left
    thanx in advance

    i dont seem to have a 4th either. i think 4th disk is something u pap for. anyway did u actually chose the option to install kde. if yes cant u change it using one of those progarms from the start menu.

    You don't have to un-install gnome, try in terminal
    Code:
    switchdesk
    to switch desktops,

    you have to pay for disk for since it contains propriotry software;
