    open YaST, go Software Management > Patterns (tab) then you will see you
    have Gnome Desktop and Base System already checked, just check the KDE4
    Desktop Environment and Base System, and hit Accept...when it is all
    done, right click your Gnome desktop, pick Leave, then Log Out, that
    will put you at a login screen....in the lower left is a "Sessions"
    click on that any there will be several environments listed...click KDE,
    ok and log in...now, the next time you boot your machine it will go to
    KDE...if you don't normally log in it will go there automatically...to
    get back to gnome you have to go to the log in screen and select it in
    Sessions, again..

    well, I decided to just jump right in to KDE and download the install DVD.
    thank you for your help
    KDE appears to be robust as I am using it now.
    once again thank you for your help.

    Why on earth?

    You have the system installed already, you do not need to download any CD
    or DVD. Just add whatever desktop you want to your current install. You can
    have several desktops installed simultaneously, this is not windows.
