Technically, Gnome and KDE are both desktop environments that run on
top of X Windows. If you've got a problem that is rooted in your XOrg
conf, the problem _should_ affect both Gnome and KDE. And if you
install Gnome, it should not interfere with your KDE settings at the
level of X Windows.
Since Gnome is basically a bundle of software, it _will_ add a lot of
entries in your main menu. You'll have, for example Kedit _and_ gedit
available as text editors. And the Gnome launcher icons end up
looking kind of out of place in your KDE menu. But that's more of a
clutter/aesthetic issue than one with settings (albeit one that drove
me and my OCD mildly batty back when I ran both environments side by
