Fedora 10, Fresh Install , "Could not start Kstartupconfig4"

Fresh install of Fedora 10 X86_64 / KDE4

I kept /home directories intact with users from Fedora 8 install.
I use the exact names and passwords from old Fedora 8 install.

I'm getting error message when I try to log into All, Users home directories;

"Could not start Kstartupconfig4, Check your install:"

I can log into 'root' without any problems.

you are going to need to get ride of the fedora 8 ( kde3.5) home folders .Or at least the ~/.kde folders in each user .the 3.5 settings are incompatible with 4.2.1
