XFCE is a desktop environment. So is KDE. Not sure what you're trying to do. If you mean you're trying to install KDE, and as you say you've got all the necessary packages, as root, type in:

rpm -i <package name>

For all your packages. Repeat until you're done. Reboot, and KDE should be there. However, I doubt it's that simple, since KDE needs a LOT of packages. What version and distro of linux are you using? Most already come with KDE and Gnome installed. I'd highly recommend taking your system somewhere with an internet connection (perhaps where you posted your message from??), and install from a repository, which will satisfy dependencies.

Zenwalk has a slackware like packaging system.

If you have the required .tgz files from the zenwalk repository, then you can install them with the help of your package manager.

Compiling from source requires a powerful computer.
