How to make KDE-Light


I don't know if anyone has ever used PocketLiunx http://www.gnulinux.de/pocketlinux/ but I really like the DE. It is like KDE, but it uses Openbox, the only true KDE componet is KDesktop (Is that the program name? The one that draws the desktop) I love this DE but I don't really like PocketLinux. It doesn't seem to be too active, and I don't really see the desktop environment as a viable reason to switch from Slackware. So here is my question: How can I make KDE-Light (as Pocket has named it) on Slackware?

Here are some pictures and info to work from:
From pocketlinux's website:
" As windowmanager we use openbox, because itīs very lightweight and easy to handle. To provide a kicker like panel, we have modified the gtk+ based fbpanel. We tried to provide a continuous look & feel on all, QT and GTK based applications."

And here is the pic: http://gnulinux.de/pocketlinux/images/Screenshot1.png

I'm using Slack 10.1, any answers would be great!

the site is okay for me, although I noticed that sourceforge looked different.

I just noticed it is back up. But it just seems to be a simplified version of KDE. I am looking for a less resource-intensive DE. I like KDE, it is just very slow on the laptop I'm using, Pentium 2 266MHZ, with only 128 megs of ram. So, does anyone know of a window manager/desktop manager that uses less resources? Like I said, the DE of PocketLinux uses less ram so if anyone can tell me how to recreate that it'd be great!

Use fluxbox it is awesome. You can run all your gnome and kde apps in a fast lightweight window manager. I can't think of one faster than flux. good luck.
