If you want kde, get Kubuntu (at the Ubuntu site)
How do you know that the SUSE problem is SATA drive? What were the errors?

"Like SUSE"--in what regard? What attribute do you like?

I think Mepis does, use the link in my sig, input some answers, gives you a great starting point for distros.

Pretty much all Linux systems can have KDE installed on them providing you meet the right dependencies etc.

yep, they're all able to install KDE. You might want to look into Mandriva. Mepis is solid and good.

From my expereince Kubuntu isn't near as solid as Ubuntu (it's been a couple versions since i've used it though..)
