Question Loading KDE after installing xfree 4.1

I did a totally clean install of red hat 7.1 and of course running the radeon ve it doesn't load w/xfree 4.0.3 and after reading what others wrote it works w/xfree of course i upgraded to that and x loaded the defaulf windowing system (that ugly thing). of course i did a copy of my old xfree directories
/usr/X11R6 and /ect/X11. I'm just wondering how to get everything else I use to use to work pretty much. KDE is installed on there and so is Xconfigurator (rather use that than xf86config). i'm just wondering pretty much how to relink things to everything runs smoothly again.
thanks in advance

as long as you have the drivers in the right place and the config file - everything should be fine when you startx.
