There's a good howto on this at:

http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/kde31to32.html

I followed those instructions on my 8.2 system and the installation to
kde 3.2.2 worked fine. You lose some of the SuSE-specific KDE
functionality, but I didn't need those features, so I don't miss them.

Hope this helps,
Mark
