After Live CD install, KDE is under-equipped

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – (NB: I've done fresh installs of FC7, FC8 (twice), Fedora 12. But this is my first Live CD install.) My Toshiba laptop got a rootkit trojan. Totally scrogged Windows Vista. Rather than reinstall that abomination, I booted with a Fedora 12 live CD, moved my documentation & videos and such to an external drive, and did an install. The default install had Gnome as the default. I prefer KDE. It was installed, but when I switched over to it I found it kind of half-implemented. There was no Konsole app, nor could I find a package manager GUI. (There was one under Gnome.) I suspect that as I get the machine ready for media playing more holes will turn up. I spent a good long while doing "yum search" and "yum info" but couldn't determine what packages I should download to make KDE fully equipped. I switched back to Gnome and its package manager GUI. There was a bundled "KDE Desktop environment" choice, but it was already checked as installed. Any ideas? (HowTos)
