User configuration and upgrading (esp. KDE)

I was about to take my desktop, wipe out my 10.0 version, and install the new club distro (2005LE + KDE 3.4). I will install from new, but I want to keep my home directory.

Unfortunately, I've seen that doing this can leave me with a goofy KDE configuration, since Mandriva's KDE has changed. Is there some way to handle this? should I just move aside KDE before installing the new OS? On another machine I have tried installing, booting, and then moving aside KDE, and that didn't work particularly well.

What I'd like is to cause Mandriva to build me a new, default KDE configuration, which I can move on to configure.

Thanks for any advice,
