trinity on pclinux: couple of minor issues.

I just installed tde-pclinux on a netbook and I am quite impressed!

for one thing, I've been having trouble getting the mic on skype to 
work on various installs on this netbook (Aspire ONe 725-0802). I did 
get it to go in two or so versions of tde after significant struggle, 
in some others, not yet. but it works fine in netrunner and now I 
discover no problem with tde-pclinux!

there are other goodies here but a couple of questions:

(a) the main one is the windows and panel don't seem to have borders. 
I'm using kde-classic; how can I have distinct borders?

(b) secondarily, there is a lot of software here, which is cool but I 
want to remove a lot of it. specifically, is there a way to remove all 
the games and edutainment all at once?

(c) I'm basically an apt-get person, long while since I've rpm-ed; 
evidently one can use apt-get which I would like to stick to using. 
any concerns here in the long run? should I go back to rpm?
