Installing kde 3.4

I've just reinstalled slackware just using disk 1. I'm planning to download kde 3.4 from linuxpackages and install it. Should it be straightforward or is there anything I need to do first. I noticed that kde comes packaged with qt on the slackware disk so if I haven't installed kde at all will it work? Thanks.

First why not install KDE from ?
(it is version 3.4.2 from current)

KDE uses qt library, so you will need to install qt package

Somewhere around you can find i686 packages for KDE 3.4.2 as well.. Of course, if yours is more than an i486 or 586..
