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.

After you install Ubuntu, set up the respritories, and install any other software you like. That includes KDE on Ubuntu, if you want it, or Gnome on Kubuntu. I have installed KDE on a Ubuntu system and it worked just fine.
Use Synaptic the package manager to install everything. You should be good to go.
I just want to know if I can install Ubuntu 6.10 and rip the KDE from the Kubuntu 6.06 disc.
The Command mentioned by BrianL, will download the KDE desktop. If you're on a slow connection, it will take a while.
As for ripping KDE from the 6.06 CD, Its possible, but I'd say unlikely, especially since you're using two different "versions"... If you were using Kubuntu 6.10, it would probably be quite possible(of course, there wouldn't be a need for this question then).
Maybe someone who knows 100% wether this can be done or not will chime in.
