Also there is trinity desktop, that is based on kde 3.5. You can install it on Debian Lenny, Debian Squeeze, Ubuntu Karmic to Oneiric, RHEL 5-6, Fedora 15 and Slackware 12.2-13.1.

I'll look into TDE , seems good – warl0ck Dec 10 '11 at 9:13
Trinity is not shipped with Dedian and/or Ubuntu, Slackware, Fedora. I suggest openSUSE if youy want official support. – Anixx Dec 28 '11 at 4:15

OpenSUSE 12.1:

As of openSUSE 12.1 KDE 3 desktop is included as officially supported part of the distribution. Additional KDE 3 software can be installed from community-supported KDE:KDE3 repository.

(KDE3, not Trinity)

KDE3 is shipped with openSUSE. LiveDVD: http://susestudio.com/download/2dd3fc0c6ad40f78c4a53b0e4fdd7a8b/OpenSUSE_12.1_KDE3.x86_64-1.0.7.iso

Other distributions that include KDE3 are AltLinux (see, e.g., the kdebase package), aLinux and Pardus Corporate.

It looks like CentOS 5.7 still uses kde 3.5

Gentoo has a portage overlay for KDE-3.5: http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/kde/
