Packaging programme for KDE... kpackage?
Why un-install it? Why not just over-install it. Get the rpm/dev/tgz files and just re-install them with the --force option. Will overwrite anything that is already there... but it doesn't do dependency checking, so you may need to look out for that.

The command is kpackage. However, if your attempting to un/reinstall KDE, I would suggest using YAST2 to do it.

If you have the space, why not just install Gnome as well? That way you can run either KDE or Gnome applications regardless of which desktop environment you are using.

And if you use a graphical login manager, you can effortlessly switch between windowing environments using the Session menu (at least on Red Hat distros).

OK.. I guess YaST2 won't work then... however, I'm sure Mandrake has some central system configuration tool like YaST2. I suggest using it to remove the unwanted programs. They are much more reliable in removing unwanted software without creating system inconsistencies.
