How do I make it go to the KDE type?Assuming you are using GDM, then there should be a button marked "session" that will let you choose which desktop environment/window manager you want.I also have a few more questions (such as why doesn't my internet work even though I am connected and how do I log in as root with Gnome-style login screen) but I wish to tackle the easiest out of hand.To help you trouble shoot the internet connection, we will need *lots* more detail. What is the output of the following commands: uname -a, lsmod, lspci, /sbin/ifconfig. You *never*, repeat *never*, want to log in to a graphical session as root. Think of it like this, you log in as root to do something quick and forget or become too lazy to switch back to a regular user to browse the net. BAM! You get some spyware or something that exploits a vulnerability in Mozilla. It is now running on your system with root priveledges. You always want to log in as regular user and then use one of the many available utilities that will allow you to temporarily assume root for one or a few commands and then go back to regular user. Checkout su, sux, sudo, gksu, gksudo, gksuexec and gnome-sudo for a start.
