OK  I will write instructions on the Trinity's wiki about switching from 
KDE3 to Trinity.

The important thing is that you can have both of them working at the 
same time. If you want to use one, you must uninstall the other.

In short:
- install Trinity, following the instructions on the wiki
- From a text console, remove at least "kdelibs3" package; but it's 
better to remove all packages from KDE3. (I don't know all of them)
- There is no automatic profile migration (yet ?). As Felix suggests, 
just try to copy your ".kde" folder to ".trinity" and see if it works. 
If not, you must remove ".trinity" and start from a new profile.
