It is different with different distros. 

Those that alow KDE3 and 4 to coexist like openSUSE have ~/.kde4 , other that 
don't offer KDE3, like Fedora have ~/.kde only. 

My approach is to have 2 different accounts (users) for each, and as I have 
enough RAM for 2 sessions, both are running most of the time, switching 
between them with Ctrl-Alt-F7 and Ctrl-Alt-F8. 

I don't use GUI (Main menu) as it locks the screen and I have to enter 
password. Since Ctrl-Alt-Fx works fine I didn't looked how to disable screen 
lock which is default in openSUSE.
