I use both.
I login to X using KDM, it starts my gnome session. As part of my gnome
session I have it startup KFM (via session manager). I use KMail and

It all works fine and I have yet to have a problem. Of course little or
no downloadign was required as this all came on the Mandrake-Linux CD,
apart from the obligatroy updates.
