Sorry I made a mistake by answering too fast . You should read:
"you can  NOT have both at the same time".

This trick mayl work only with a KDE3 profile (Nowadays, only people 
using openSUSE are concerned I think).
If you try it with a KDE4 profile (I think you have KDE4 since you are 
using Mageia 2), I think it will not work at all.

No you don't need to remove anything from KDE4.
The conflict exists only with opensuse's KDE3. There are no problem with 
KDE4, in any distribution.
