KDE 1.x RPMS (or KDE 1.x programs, in general) won't work with KDE 3.2 (or won't work in most cases). The only method is to install old KDE (I don't think you will find RPMs), probbaly from source and then install the app (also form source). I tried to find Katchit's port to KDE 3, but it looks it's no longer in development.
