Im afraid that wont work. With every package he tries to uninstall he will get an error message - kdexxx is required by kdexxx.
If you have only just installed fedora core, the easiest way to remove kde is to re-install fedora making sure you uncheck the option to install kde.

have you tried to use the package manager that comes with fedora to remove the package?

As for ensuring that the correct package starts up, you need to edit this file:

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

And remove the KDE command and replace it with the twm window manager, or whatever windowmanager you wish to use. If the user already exists, then you will find that they have a similarly configured .xinitrc in their home directory which will need editing.

HTH:)

rpm -e rpmfile --force will forcibly remove the package even though it has dependencies
