    hxxp://docs dot kde.org/development/en/kdebase/faq/install.html

    the above should provide all the help you need of course the kde website also has lots of resources and information also be mindful of the prerequisites For KDE 3.4.1, you need the Qt™ library version 3.3 or greater. Please make sure you download the correct Qt™. You will also need the header files, if you want to compile KDE yourself
    you can find it at hxxp://www dot trolltech.com/download. for free

    KDE 4 is a complete pain inthe a$$ to install in slackware 11.0. It involves uprading to the qt4 packages which some of your tools need. If you know nothing or little about linux I wouldnt try it.

    Feel free to try it my friend. I'm the same way I love a challenge but let me tell you this: I couldn't get it going properly so if you can, well splendid!
