How to install KDE 3.2 on RedHat 9.0

I hope, that the title is not so stupid.

So, I'm with KDE 3.1-12 and I want to upgrade to KDE 3.2. My question is "where can I find RPM (??) file with this version?"

There are few things more:
How could I know if I have all the things, that are necessary to upgrade to KDE 3.2?
What must I do to install properly the new version? I mean the process: installation, removing old (if they're not) packages, etc.

I'm on RH9 too atm and I have yet to find rpm's for KDE 3.2, I upgraded my install to KDE 3.1.4 though.
To list all the kde components you have installed, open a terminal and type
$ rpm -qa kde*

Then you can go to this ftp and download the packages you want.
I had to download arts-1.1.4 and qt-3.1.2 too.
Just dump them into an empty directory and do
# rpm -Uvh *.rpm
