Sorry it took so long, but I think the wait is worth it.... 

 I have just made available a new version of KDE2 Alpha binaries in RPM
and -bin.tar.gz format. Also available are the sources that worked to compile
these packages.
 Please read the README file in the directory, this tells you most of what
 you need to know to install and update.
 These files are available via ftp from:
 or via http at: (follow links for kde2 Alpha 
 You will also be able to find these at (after a few days):
 If you want to try koffice from kde 1.x without updating the rest of kde
 you may want to try the RPMS from David Faure (faure at at (these
 were packaged for Mandrake but should work on other RPM based distros):
 These binaries are built from CVS as of 30 March 
 2000 at 6:30am Eastern Standard Time (-0500).
 Please bring all install questions to the un-official 
 kde-alpha list at kde-alpha-request at
 The installs have been tested by me on a RedHat 6.1 
 machine. They have also been reported to work on all 
 other distributions.
 You will need to do a --force and a --nodeps on the rpm 
 If you are running prior Alpha's I highly recommend you 
 update. There are a lot of fixes and some structural 
 changes in the packages. 
 You will also find Source tar.gz's in the same
