Check this out. I re-installed a totally fresh copy of Red Hat 7.2, without KDE installed at all.
Then, I downloaded all of the redhat 7.2 rpms from the ftp.kde.org.
Then, I typed the following command in the directory where I have all the rpms, and this is the result:
root@space i386]# rpm -Uvh *rpm
error: failed dependencies:

So, can anyone explain how to install KDE 3.0 on a Red Hat 7.2 system??
