Step by step tutorial for installing KDE and removing Gnome:

  • Open up Terminal .
  • Log in as root via
    su
  • Enter
    yum install @kde-desktop system-switch-displaymanager kdm
    
This will install the required packages.
  • Now enter
    system-switch-displaymanager kdm
    
This will make the system use KDM as the default Display Manager
  • Reboot your machine.
  • Choose KDE as session and Log In.
  • If you plan to remove GNOME, continue; otherwise you're done now.
  • Remove Gnome using
    yum remove @gnome-desktop

NOTE
Watch out that this removes most Gnome/GTK programs from the system, including Firefox. You will have to reinstall the removed programs once the process is complete.
  • You can now use KDE as the default Desktop Environment.
