    Thank you, this looks like it works. I found the rpm for kdebase3-3.2.3-7 but
    it wouldn't install. So I held my breath and updated to 3.3 and it seems to
    be working fine. This kde3-stable is the component I want to use in my
    component list. Should I use this in place of kde or with kde or not with
    the kde component?

    Now I understand what Richard Bos meant by:

    Than you configured... Your help is at:
    > > > http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/home.html#contents

    And I now understand 'SuSE/9.1-i386/base' is short for
    'ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/9.1-i386/base/' and the $ is a
    shell prompt. Cool.

    I've learned something yet again new and useful to me from this list.
    Look:
    :~/Documents> zgrep kdebase3\; contlist.bz2 | grep i586
    kdebase3;3.2.1-63;i586;base
    kdebase3;3.2.1-68.15;i586;update
    kdebase3;3.2.1-68.23;i586;update
    kdebase3;3.2.2-8;i586;kde3-stable
    kdebase3;3.2.3-5;i586;kde3-stable
    kdebase3;3.2.91-3;i586;kde-unstable
    kdebase3;3.2.92-1;i586;kde-unstable
    kdebase3;3.3.0-1;i586;suse-people
    kdebase3;3.3.0-8;i586;kde
    kdebase3;3.3.0-8;i586;kde3-stable

    and it looks like I can use the kde or the kde3-stable component in my
    source.list judging from these two lines:

    kdebase3;3.3.0-8;i586;kde
    kdebase3;3.3.0-8;i586;kde3-stable

    Excellent,
    Jerome
