Thumbs up Kde 3.2 beta & Fonts & swaret

I decided to give kde 3,2 beta a try (since Slax had it, it looked so nice) on my Slackware 9.1.
Installed all the slackware packages and everything seemed to work great until a reboot or two. Fonts look now messy in gnome and kde.
I know I should not perhaps have tried a beta and maybe this is one for the kde forum.
Could this be an x server problem or something and I was wondering if there is some kind of way to get my fonts back or maybe get the x server working again to display nice again.
Or what is an easy way to uninstall kde 3.2 and replace with the 3.1?
I'm thinking of just using swaret and reinstalling kde or xf86 stuff.

Nevermind fixed it:
Slackware is really easy compared to SuSE

SLackware is great

Fixed my problem and went back to kde 3.1.
Slackware is easier for me than SuSE, and I only know a handful of commands.
Everything seems simple.

Was able to watch a dvd on first install, no such luck with SuSE.
My sound worked right off too. Installing the NVIDIA is simple.

I have been using Swaret and pkgtool along with a couple of commands and seem to know where everything pretty much is too.

I hate YAST: (what's wrong with you people)
