Well I can't give you details on how to upgrade KDE but can I ask _why_ you want to upgrade ? is there a compelling reason you need to upgrade ? a mandatory bug fix perhaps ???

Personally, I prefer not to run a GUI environment on a server (SLES is a server distribution), never really needed it. Yast runs perfectly in a shell via SSH using the ncurses interface.

I administer a ton of SLES servers and rarely need/use X, when I do use X the default install of KDE is more than sufficient (when I'm done in X I usually drop to init3 to save the CPU cycles/ram to do real work)
