why is it so difficult to get kde 3.2 beta installed?

i have been trying over and over to install kde 3.2, well, apt won't install it, when i download the packages i keep getting dependencies probs that are just insane. I found a redhat 9 apt source (i have fedora core) when i try to upgrade it won't allow it, nothing is selected for install after i have just selected it. I have been posting questions a lot on this subject, but nobody has any ideas on how to fix it. I have been all over the web, and nothing. I take it kde 3.2 is impossible to install and no one has it

Try using Konstruct to build it:

It's safer than overwriting the old KDE anyway.
