To choose which desktop GUI system to run, use:

Name       : switchdesk
Arch       : noarch
Version    : 4.0.8
Release    : 7.el5
Size       : 7.6 k
Repo       : installed
Summary    : A desktop environment switcher for GNOME, KDE 
and AnotherLevel.
License    : GPL
Description: The Desktop Switcher is a tool which enables
 	   : users to easily switch between various
 	   : desktop environments that they have installed.
 	   :  The tool includes support for KDE, GNOME, XFce4
 	   : and twm.

In a particular desktop GUI environmet you can set how many 
virtual desktop sessions you want to run, and under XFCE you 
can run the xfce4-panel command, to give you a nice set of 
virtual desktops to switch between.
