Question Upgrading Kernel & KDE

I'm currently using SuSE Professional Version with Linux kernel version 2.4 and KDE 3.14.

My question is What is the easiest, least painful way to upgrade the kernel to version 2.6 and KDE 3.3?

I've tried to use Konstruct to upgrade my KDE and it never makes it thru the compile procedure... normally gives some KDE Library missing or not there.

I've also tried to download the rpm's from the SuSE website and when I use YAST to install them... ( by the way I use YAST in the KDE enviornment ) it wipes out my old version of KDE and I can't use YAST anymore. I can't use YAST from a terminal because I can't get my mouse to work correctly when YAST is initiated.

I tried to download the lastest kernel and install it but that flopped bigtime. I wound up reloading my whole SuSE 9.0 off my DVD. Can the Kernel be upgraded with rpm???

Anyways, if anyone has any suggestions... please pass them along to me.

Thank you,

you should run yast/software/add installation source or change installation source (or somethin like that, I have a traslation version). Then you add a ftp source, for kde I use
ftp server:
directory: /ftp/pub/suse/i386/supplementary/KDE/update_for_9.1/yast-source/

then you activate it,
then you run install/uninstall software and the yast should get info from the ftp source, then you can just mark as update kdebase package and that's all
