Its been said that you can install 3.5.9 right along side KDE4, which
would allow you to move back and forth.

I would prefer to have only the stable KDE 3 (or is it KDE 3.x?,
whichever). What happens is that in the gnome Application Menu (set up
from the top Panel of the Desktop), there appear 2 moieties of each
application (e.g. there are 2 kedit's, 2 kate's , etc.). So, I would
like to remove the KDE4Desktop, KDE4 Base Files (& it's associated
libraries & apps.) . Is this possible from YAST (or by any other way).
If so, how can it be done?
PS: Am new to Linux

If you are new to linux, I would recommend sticking to Either Gnome
or KDE. Its your choice, you can run all three, but things are way
less confusing if you
pick one and stick with that. KDE 3 is so complete and feature rich that I find
no use for Gnome, but that's just me.

But yes, you can go into yast software management section and
find KDE4 and ask that all of it be dis installed.

You could then turn around and select all of kde3 for installation.
You can even do those in the same pass if you want.

Someone stole my tag line, so now I have this rental.
