I tried your excellently detailed instructions, but as i click asccept the update just seems to quit.. also in viewing the updates.. i don't see any listing for 3.2 only 3.14... any idea why?
update.. well now i have a problem. I tried it the other way
rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force *.rpm
It seemed to update.. things registerred as 3.2 but
When I restarted, in runlevel 5, it didn't boot to the gui login.. and when i logged in and ran startx I received an error stating, XIO : fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
When I run startkde the following comes up.
xsetroot : unable to open display ''
xset: unable to open display ""
ksplash: cannot connect to xserver
kdeinit : Aborting. $DISPLAY is not set
Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory
Error: Can't contact kdeinit!
startkde: Running shutdown scripts
Any thought or do i have to reinstall.. the thought is when stuff like this breaks it's an opportuinity to learn.. so i would appreciate any insight.
Nearest I can figure, something is screwed with my display entry in the XFree86config file.. but it all looks ok to me.
Thanks for your help.

I just did the entire set-up from Yast. You will first need to point Yast to an online Source index.
Here's the method:
Click "Change Source of Installation"
Click "Add" then "FTP"
At the Server and Directory Window click or fill in the following:
Server Name: mirror.mcs.anl.gov (note: you can choose any mirror you want)
Directory on Server: pub/suse/i386/supplementary/KDE/update_for_9.0/yast-source/
Leave the other boxes empty. Click "OK".
Yast should now set up this installation source. Once added make sure that the status indicator is set to "On". If not then enable it now.
Now go back to the Yast control center main menu and click "Install and Remove Software".
Click "Selections" from the Filter drop down menu.
Tick the box at "KDE Desktop Environment" to get the Update icon.
You still may get a few dependency issues (depending on what you have installed).
You can then go back and update your other selections such as Gnome System and Graphical Base System.
