If you want to try an easy-to-use distro with KDE and a load of other software, get Knoppix:

It's debian-based, and primarily a Live-CD distro, but also can also be installed to your hard disk using a built-in script, setting up a dual-boot and everything for you.
Check the bottom of the FAQ for details of the install script.

Hope you like it

Try Vector

I use Vector and love it. There is great support in their forums and they really listen to suggestions.

It is Slack based with KDE as the default desktop.

I am dual booting with winxp so I know it can be done.
