KDE 4.0

I recently installed Fedora Core 9 on my computer, including KDE 4.  I 
have been using KDE 3 for more than several years, and I am very 
comfortable with the appearance of my desktop.  I'd like to configure 
KDE 4 to resemble KDE 3 as much as possible.  This includes my own 
background setting, no menu bar at the top of the screen, the type of 
console I'm used to (a shell, white background, black type, probably 
about 24 lines),  the panel at the bottom with a white background, etc.  
One reason for this is because I have vision problems so I am not 
comfortable with the harsher, darker colors.  I am not sure of some of 
the terminology so I apologize if I'm using some incorrect words. 

Is there some sort of "conversion" manual that would help me sort out 
what I need to change to more closely emulate what I see with KDE 3.0?  
Also, the system I installed did not have the command kcontrol.  Is that 
no longer supported?  If not then, what command do I use in place of 
kcontrol?  The help documentation references kcontrol, but it's not 
there.  Finally, is there a way to preserve my original configuration?  
Because I installed Fedora 9 on a separate disk partition, it was very 
easy for me to boot back to 6, but it took some time to restore my 
original KDE environment.  I would like to preserve those files

I know there are a number of questions in my email.  Thanks for any help 
you can give me.
