Slackware is wonderfully tolerant. Try removepkg for all the packages in the /kde directory on the DVD and then just install those 3 if it bworks great, if not just install the package it complains about and try again. If you cannot figure it out just re-install all the packages in the /kde direcory.

caveat: change the runlevel to 3 in /etc/inittab to be on the safe side.
