That sounds great.  Thanks.

So the can now coexist well!  That was the point of the move to
/opt/kde3, right?  But I gather I'd have to completely reconfigure my
kde settings.  Since everything is configured in .kde3, I'll need to
redo my kmail accounts, etc.

I can live with that.  It sounds like kde4.2 is getting good enough to
be usable.

Are there any gotchas I need to be aware of to try having both KDEs installed?
