Angry KDE died on me, help!

I have SuSE Linux 8.2.

All I did was change the appearance theme from the standard SuSE theme to the included "Wooden" theme with the green Kicker bar and big orange border around the windows.

Well, since then KDE crashed. The desktop icons will not come back at all.

The Kicker does come up, but if I click on ANY button, it crashes again.

Is this a known problem?

Is this my distro (SuSE, is Red Hat more reliable or is that a myth?)

How can I fix it? I currently boot to a command prompt and type in "startx ___" where ___ is kde or gnome. Makes installing new drivers easier... I am a Linux newbie but know how to nagivate the CLI.


Other hardware:

BFG brand Nvidia Geforce 4600 video card, 128mb RAM.
Asus NF7 mobo with the latest Nforce2 drivers with integrated sound and NIC disabled.
Western Digital 40GB HD.
SB Audigy sound
3com 3c905c-xl NIC
1GB RAM (two 512MB Crucial RAM modules)

well, i've no idea why that would crash kde, but if you rename ~/.kde to something else, then that should reset all the settings to the defaults.
