emerge-installing individual packages & dependencies
i have a very low speed internet connection
emerge does not work properly (keeps giving connection timed out)
i wish to install KDE
download all the dependencies seperately and install them
all the dependencies seperately
put this .tar.bz2 file in /usr/portage/distfiles/
and ran the command
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "kdebase-3.5.2.tar.bz2".
how do i install these dependencies using emerge by downloading them sperately

If you download a package as a .bz2 file without using the emerge command, you cannot install the package using emerge. You need to use the tar command and possibly the make, make install commands.
I hit this problem as well when I was first getting into Gentoo. With gentoo you've got portage, bz2 and another file extension that I don't remember that you DO use emerge to install.
In this case you need the tar and follow up commands.

You can install it with portage without having portage download the file. The OP has done it the correct way, but his command should have been:
It will however pull in dependencies and download them, and it will download the bz2 file if the one in /usr/portage/distfiles isn't the correct one that the ebuild calls for.
You should really read through this:
