DO you run Knoppix from CD or from HD? What do you mean by 'remove'? Would you like to change your window manager? If so, you have such an option when you're logging in.

you can start X manually, like #X but, then you don't have any window manager at all! Try researching some about X and Window Managers, and how to set them up, I'm pretty sure you can just ignore KDE's presence, and do what you wanna do.

Well, if you remove the whole KDE, may apps won't run (especially if you remove both KDE and QT). I think it's a better idea to remove the apps you don't need (kdegames, for example).
freak111, please tell us why you want to remove it? You think it's slow? You don't like it? You need disk space?

freak, as Mara points out, is there really a need to physically remove KDE, or do you just want to use Gnome instead of KDE as your window manager? If you need to change managers, you should be able to just run xwmconfig and pick whichever one suits you best. -- J.W.
