When I upgraded to Debian Squeeze, which uses KDE4, I installed TDE. I was using 
Kontact with the Windowmaker window manager, so I did'nt, still don't, have lots 
of experience with the KDE DE.

I have backups, of /home, at least backup your ~/.kde dir and ~/Mail dir. No 
worries with backups :-)

I renamed my .kde to .trinity. I think it just works, it is the same code. 
My Mail dir is 1.8gb, it is my business email, been around for quite some time. 
don't want to lose it :-)
