I've always liked KDM for this feature(easily switch window managers
at login), despite the fact I haven't seriously used KDE for 4 years,
I still use KDM on many systems that have X(on some I use GDM because
of the gdm-compadible Xnest server which is reaaaaaaaaaaally cool)

you can change what window managers are available using the kcontrol
panel inside KDE.

there are a buncha other ways to select which WM, but kdm works good
for me.
