You always can compile it from source, but your trouble seems to be X related, 
so you should prefer to search for in X related lists and groups.

Do you run X on all machines or one X-Server with a couple of clients?
Does the server hang and clients still stay alive, when X freezes or do all 
boxes freeze totally etc.?

If you are running all boxes on RedHat 6.2 it would be most comfortable- just 
for convenience- if you upgrade to the recent 7.3, that includes a rather 
stable KDE 3.0.0 and X 4.2.0.
Look for a mirror near your site at 
http://www.redhat.com/download/mirror.html and read the doc about 
Perhaps it is an exciting option to change the base system  to FreeBSD,
but IMHO it is heavy work to perform this on a couple of boxes, while updating 
your distro should run without graver trouble -more often than not  ;-) .
May be you run in some trouble after an upgrade of KDE by incompatibilities if 
you run apps written for KDE 1.x, so check your needs first.
