install KDE from GNOME


I am using RedHat 7.3 , GNOME and I am trying to install
KDE from the distribution CD's, but I am getting
dependency errors.

I am using the following command to install KDE from bash logged
in as root.

rpm -Uvh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/kdebase-3.0.0-12.rpm


rpm -Uvh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/kdebase-*

Upon executing either of the above commands I am getting
dependency errors.

I also tried using the GUI installer(GNOME rpm center) but got
the same error messages as described above.

If anybody could guide me on installing KDE from GNOME, I
would be very thankful.

Thank You
