So how did you achieve that? Is that one screen really devoted to KDE on OSX or is it a window to something else?

yep id like to know also
ive heard about installing kde in x11 but never tried

I'm gonna be pretty busy over the weekend, but I think I'm gonna do a write up of all the steps I did so people can do the same,
KDE is running in a window with Xnest, full details to be expained probably around monday.
Cheers, si

(additional. yes KDE is running side by side with OSX on the same machine no vnc or remote desktop here.)

Just a heads-up, I'd be very careful with your grammar and spelling as I expect a story like this will get Slashdotted. Keep those images small. :)
