I have no experience of using anything but kde, on a combined fe/be and 
general purpose box.

Smart can't fully upgrade this and at present I have two packages locked 
out from the kde-testing-redhat repo.

These are

kdebase 6:3.5.7-6.el5 at i386
kdelibs 6:3.5.7-9.el5 at i386

Konqueror still crashes occasionally.  I think this is supposed to be 
cured by using xdm, but there is still no xorg-x11-xdm packge listed.
