As others have said, forget KDE on these machines. I'd suggest icewm as a 
nice lite window manager that behaves in a recognisable way for 'nix newbies. 
It is also much easier to squeeze debian into a small space than redhat, 
though if you lose KDE, you might still fit it in 500M.

xchat is probably the one to use as it has a nice looking simple gui.
