the ftp site i listed below only has 3.1.5 and i feel like quite the doob since i did not realize that until i burned them to cd. i did get 3.2 from ftp.us.kde.org though and it is pretty fast as well. off to make another coaster!
i was able to download them pretty quickly from ftp.gtlib.cc.gatech.edu/pub/kde/stable/latest/contrib/slackware/9.1
dont forget to grab koffice 1.3
off to install!!!
opps, just realized that path is for slackware, but that ftp server is pretty quick
