Hi Lou,

I believe all you'll need to do is rename `~/.kde' to be `~/.kde4'  Or
if you have spare disk space, you can be super careful and `cp -rad
~/.kde ~/.kde4'

You'll want to do either when you're not logged in as yourself.  You
might want to boot up at level three - pass `3' to `grub'

Please let others respond in case I'm wrong though.  :)
