1) Have a look at

2) You'll probably want either generic (not distro-specific) themes, or themes designed for Fedora and your version of kde. The debian ones are often packaged as .deb files.

google('debian'):; It's a (imnsho) very good distro. It comes in three tiers: stable/testing/unstable; I'd recommend testing for desktop use, or unstable for the daring

one quality of debian that I like is that if you only select the 'main' branch of packages, you only get free software (according to the Debian Free Software Guidelines, which is pretty close to OSI's definition, and quite OK for me, a believer in all things GNU).

Another benefit of Debian is that they are actively porting things to run on HURD (see if you don't know what it is).

anyways, google is your friend

jonas, just out of curiosity: why are you still running
that buggy, security-hole ridden kernel?
