Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

you need the KDE libraries to run those games I bet. When you installed the games... the RPM package probably decided to make KDE a dependancy which is why it installed it.
KDE isn't that bad
anyway, see if the kde packages are separated into things like kdebase, kdelibs, etc. If so, try to remove kdebase and hope it doesn't remove your games also. RPM has let me down in the past, so good luck to you.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix, 98,2000 + various
kde needs to be installed for kde games to work. that's why your installer put it on, but it did just enough to get kde-games to work. i bet it installed about 10 packages or so. kde-libs and several things like that. make your package manager sort alphabetically, and and uncheck the kde stuff that got installed.
what distro are you using? if you are running slackware its is pretty easy just use the 'pkgtool' command and choose remove. then select everything with kde in the name... if not slackware i think it might be a bit harder... good luck.

as root, this will give you all your pci devices, and the first line is the
chipset of your motherboard. Might not help tell you who made it, or
it may, but the chipset is often more important than who put their name on it.
