Just to offer a different point of view, if you are completely new to 
KDE I would not suggest starting of learning KDE3 now. KDE4 is very 
different, the way of the future and the latest KDE 4.2 release is 
pretty stable.

I am not sure what you think would be confusing about adding KDE4 to 
your ubuntu 9.04 box ? - It can co-exist with gnome just fine, and you 
can switch between the two at login time.

I would suggest this, instead of starting of learning KDE3, which you 
will eventually have to largely forget and relearn with KDE4.
