Thanks for the info. Beta usually means that no distro has it now. Is 
that the case? Or is it available on e.g., Debian unstable?

Also the KDE Manual that came with my early version of KDE4 is so far 
out of date even for 2.0.2 as to be unhelpful. Is there a wiki 
somewhere or a tutorial that is a bit more up to date?
