To remove all of KDE, you should be able to go into whatever package management system you have (not sure what it's called on RedHat) and remove anything with 'kde' in it. You could also just boot to a console, or into Gnome or whatever other non-KDE interface you like, and type (as root):

rpm -e kde

As far as I know, Konqueror is part of KDE, and can't really be separated from it. If you don't like it, of course, you don't have to run it

you're not gonna be able to remove kde from inside kde. You do have to terminate kde and go to a command shell to do it.

As for the email links, just go to kde control center->Components->File Associations and change the application preference order for text/html to what you want.
