How can I upgrade KDE and Gnome in my current distro Red Hat 7.3?


Is there a quick install program with either of the two new environments? I've heard upgrading the environment can be a major pain. I would normally just upgrade to another distro but Red Hat seems to be the only one that can detect my keyboard (USB). I also am not a fan of Red Hat 8. I like having the two environments to play around with and Red Hat 8 seems to much like Windows.

I used http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/ to upgrade my RH8 KDE 3.0 to 3.1. It has support on it for RH7.3. Using apt, it was a couple commands. Apt will look through the list of installed packages, and the dependencies for the new packages, and works out what it needs to install. Pretty slick, IMO.
