Thanks for answering my question. I bought the 8.1 update but chose to do a complete install from the DVD so that may answer the difference between the two computers.
I'm pretty sure it was left out in 8.1 due to the new YaST features. I did a clean 8.1 install as well and it is missing, as is Kappfinder, possibly some other things that I just never used.
With a clean 8.1 install, clicking on an RPM in Konqueror causes the RPM info to show up in Konqueror, as well as a button to "Install package with YaST".
Personally I find this more useful than KPackage. I used "Install package with YaST" to install an RPM that's not part of the SuSE DVD, and it found all the required dependencies and installed those from the DVD at the same time, without me having to find them myself.
