KDE installation and customization

KDE is becoming the most common desktop environment for Linux and also runs on Solaris, FreeBSD, SGI IRIX and HP-UX. It runs on top of X Windows (or you can use the K windows manager instead) and is free. Red Hat 6.0 installs automatically two other desktop environments: GNOME and AnotherLevel. KDE is included in the Red Hat 6.0 distribution but it is not installed automatically. This tutorial covers its installation and customization. After KDE is installed you can use any of the three environments at will, or tools from one environment in the others, so there is not really a need to choose just one. You can take a look at KDE screenshots.
