Hi again,
I looked better and I found the following issues:

When I try to Generate HTML I get the following:
	Couldn't find any themes - this is very likely an installation error

When I try to Run Kimdaba Demo I get the following:
	Couldn't find kimdaba/demo/index.xml. This is likely an installation error. 
Did you remember to do a 'make install'? Did you set KDEDIRS, in case you 
didn't install it in the default location?

I found I had permission problems:
$ ls -l /usr/share/apps/kimdaba
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         3087 sep  7 14:07 default-setup
drwx------    3 root     root         4096 feb  8 16:13 demo/
drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root         4096 dic 20 15:07 icons/
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         3733 abr 28  2003 infobox.js
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1393 ene 25 12:40 kimdabaui.rc
drwx------    2 root     root         4096 feb  8 16:13 pics/
drwx------    3 root     root         4096 ene 31 14:11 themes/
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         4163 feb  3 20:27 tips

So, I did:
$chmod -R 755 /usr/share/apps/kimdaba/themes
$chmod -R 755 /usr/share/apps/kimdaba/demo

Generate HTML works now, but 'Run Kimdaba Demo' is still giving me troubles. 
It says:
Unable to make symlink from 
'/usr/share/apps/kimdaba/demo/CategoryImages/Keywords-beers.jpg' to 

I haven't found how to solve this. I am running Mandrake 9.2 under msec 5 
(paranoid security mode). I am almost sure this problem is related with my 
permissions too.
NOTE: I had the same problem with the previous releases of Kimdaba (with the 
exception of the one I installed trough mdk.rpm).
