Hey Raven,
With your KDE problem, did you try re-installing the KDE packages?  I would
try to rpm -i or rpm -U <package>, then try to launch KDE.  With pine, start
the mail client.  From the initial screen hit S for setup, then C for
config.  Find the value's in the list you want to change, then hit A.
