16mb of ram and you want to run KDE? I dont think that all that good an idea. 
Try a light weight window manager  this site

http://www.plig.org/xwinman/others.html

has a list of heaps of different windows manager and desktops, try something 
labelled as minimalistic eg. fvwm or xfce maybe.

As far as installing it is concerned, your best bet is to go through 
/stand/sysinstall and select configure, then distibutions and select the 
Xfree distributions. once that is installed configure your x server ( 
configure=> xserver configuration once again in /stand/sysinstall )
and then install your windowmanager.

Hope that helps
