problem is: there is not much choice left nowadays when searching for such an 
'enterprise distro' which still supports kde3.5.x - you mentioned centOS, 
well, but that might imply other restrictions (e.g. problems with newer 
hardware due to outdated kernel etc...).
in the end, it turns out that all those who want to stick with 3.5 for some 
reasons, have a hard time now because kde depelopers and distros have given up
on 3.5 too early, before kde4 is a perfect replacement in all aspects.
