    Open YAST and go to software management. Search for KDE. You can install KDE 3.5.10 which is rock solid and has a gazillion customization options,
    or KDE 4.1 which is the newest version and has many exciting new features (but is not as mature as 3.5.10) or you can install both!
    At the login screen you will have the option to select Gnome, KDE 3.5.10 or KDE 4.1

    Thanks I tried this and found that Yast would not open? I used the correct password and then system just waits as if its not there. Should Yast open within a minute or so?

    That is not good!

    I'd recommend you try doing a repair from the installation Disk
