I have 11.1 installed with KDE 3.x and it seems to do all right. By the
way my board is a P2B-DS motherboard with two cpu's installed. You might
want to consider a lighter weight desktop for your setup.

It is on the list of possibilities. Preferably one that uses the same
desktop ICON file format. We have a few desktop-based menus constructed
this way. Otherwise, we do not rely on KDE. Just X11 (and tk). We do not
really want to have to set up another desktop.

This is to replace a UnixWare 7.x system running KDE 1.something (don't
remember exactly which version). It is in use in road vehicles in the US
that measure road conditions. All our other users have long moved to
openSUSE 10.0 or newer. But as the systems work so well, they really do
not want to change them. But there has been a hardware failure in a
subsystem (a VME-based PC), and the replacement hardware is only
supported by a newer OS.
