It's supposed to be ( and was before I installed KDE3 ) started from

I installed it from the latest 3.0.2 RPM's from the KDE ftp site.

Yes, same user as for KDE2. I can't run kde2 now, though, either. I
tried re-installing KDE2 from my Mandrake install CD's, and it has
problems too. I can't remember what they were, since when it started
having problems, I just un-installed it again, and continued to try to
debug the problem with KDE3.
Most of the time I've been running Gnome, but now I'm having problems
with it as well, since it won't keep the WindowManager settings I set up
in it. So I'm fairly hosed! <grin>
