Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

first backup your inportant files, then copy $HOME/.kde to $HOME/.kde31, do the same with /root/.kde
install id3lib, gnokii, flac, taglib and libjasper(needed by 3.2). then uninstall kdebase3-suse, k3b, and your kde-devel packages,(to help avoid dependency issues).
put all kde3.2 packages in a directory by themselves, drop to runlevel 3 (type init 3 at a root term) hit f2 to clear the suse splash screen if needed, login as root, cd to the directory where you saved the 3.2 packages, and type rpm -Uvh *.rpm .
install or remove any remaining packages rpm complains about until you get a successful upgrade.
I downloaded the rpms for KDE 3.2 from the kde website and installed them on my machine runnign SuSE 9.0 pro, after I did that I lost many of the things from SuSE such as SuSE watcher and the SuSE plugger. Are there special packages of KDE 3.2 for SuSE ?? I am downloading the rpms from the suse website now, are those the packages I need to install?
Thanks in advance

Yes - for most of the KDE SuSE specific functionality you need to go and download from some of the SuSE mirrors.
I suggest you to download all of the base and devel packages, and for Internationalization and application specific packages to make your own selection.
"arts and then kdelibs should be installed before everything else, and kdeaddons last. The other packages can be installed in any arbitrary order."
This the only mention I found about any order, and when I start with just arts, it's dependencies keep on growing, I keep on adding, until all rpm's I already downloaded are in it and I still arrive at the same point.
