Go to
ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/3.1.4/RedHat/9/i386
Download all the KDE packages you need into an empty folder and do

# rpm -Uvh *.rpm

This will update your KDE to version 3.1.4, restart X and you're done.

Installing and using apt would prob'ly be easier...

This site has an apt repository of KDE files and it explains everything on how to install it:

http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/

But when I tried it on my computer, it didn't work :(

error: Failed dependencies:
kdepim = 3.1-5 is needed by (installed) kdepim-devel-3.1-5
This is the error that I get when I try to run rpm -Uvh *.rpm. I tried install the newest kdepim-3.1.5.src.rpm, and kdepim-3.1-5 programs. and nothing.

Thanks

You don't need the devel package (unless you need the development libraries for some personal reasons), remove it first
# rpm -e kdepim-devel-3.1-5
Then run the whole rmp -Uvh procedure again
