did you lookup/read the manual... hope this helps..

toKDE and toXFCE
----------------

In the KDE menu under "System" you will now find an icon called "toXFCE", click this when
you want to switch your Window Manager to XFCE. When you click this icon, a terminal window
will appear and in this terminal xbvset will run. Basically, just fill out the details as
you would normally then your Xbox will reboot to XFCE.

In XFCE, there is a menu item called "toKDE" which functions in exactly the same way as
"toXFCE" only it switches from XFCE to KDE.
