You'll need to supply more information before anyone can help you.

Hello.
What distro please?
Why do you need to get rid of XFCE? Can't you just add KDE?

First, what distro are you using? Second, for your windows part you will need to add a line to your /etc/fstab file that looks something like this:

/dev/hdX /mnt/windows ntfs defaults 0 0

where X is your partition number in question.
Then at a command prompt (as root) type:
#mkdir /mnt/windows
#mount /mnt/windows

Well if it's slackware based I would assume you would do something like:
#telinit 1
(to go to single user mode)
#removepkg xfce*
(to remove xfce)
#installpkg kde*
(to install kde)

Kde 3.4.1 packages for slackware can be found here. I don't know about minislack and if they will work for you or not, but it's a good place to start. Download all the packages to your computer and follow the directions in the readme To change your default window manager you need to run 'xwmconfig' and choose kde. Good Luck

Simply get Slackware if you want KDE since it is Xfce that makes minislack particularly unique.
