Hi Jim,

if you have apt installed, if not go to and download it, then go to the other 
url below:

http://www.fedora.us/wiki/FedoraHOWTO			### apt packages


and add the entries it says for your /etc/apt/sources.list

then do:

apt-get update 				#### gets new package info etc
apt-get dist-upgrade 			#### upgrades everything to latest realeases
apt-get install k3b			#### installs k3b and all needed dependanices

The rest is done for you. It will not install the whole of KDE, just the 
necessary libs etc.

The k3b icon should appear in system tools.

I run Kmail and loads of other KDE apps on gnome.

Again all you need are the libs etc.

Hope this helps.

P.S I hope you have some form xDSL, but it shouldn't take too long on dail-up
