Well one of your problems is that linux is going into a failsafe mode and 
loading probably the twm window manager which is why you get to manually 
place the outline etc. Instead of typing kde try typing startkde.

Your whole kdm login setup seems to be corrupt. I learnt a long time ago not 
to believe users who say they reformatted and reinstalled and it does the 
same thing. If that was true then either your install disks are corrupt or 
else everyone else would be having the same problem..
I advise you to reinstall including wiping your home and opt partitions if 
they are separate.
