Sure! That's easy!
use this link to download, then unpack and use. no need to install.
Use dynamic download

The guy was right... It doesn't matter which distro you are using (to a certain extend) but you should check which version of qt you have installed. To do this, type qtconfig and go see the About Qt in the help menu. If you don't have Qt 3.2 at least (which I suspect), then don't download the dynamic one, but the static one with Qt 3.2 installed in it. If you do have Qt 3.2 installed, then the dynamic should work.
