You might not want the Kubuntu CD.  If you install it, you'll loose all 
of your Gnome applications (some of which I find quite useful).  I would 
suggest upgrading to Breezy as mentioned above and them installing the 
package "kubuntu-desktop".  That way, you get Kubuntu, but keep all of 
your Gnome goodies and can even use Gnome in the future if you find KDE 
not exactly to your liking.
