I still use GNOME for certain purposes, so that's not an option right now.

I didn't setup sudo because I hate it, and I never need kdesudo. I'm  
hoping someone can find out why kdesu won't accept the root password when  
I need to configure something which requires Admin mode.

KNetworkManager shows both the wired and wifi, but won't allow me to use  
them. The interface comes up and is locked, in the sense it doesn't react  
to the mouse. And I can't get into Admin mode because kdesu won't work.
