To use it to edit config files:

From KDE do Alt+F2.
Type "kdesu kwrite" (without the quotation marks) in the snall window that 

When asked for password, enter the root password.

Load file as you would in a wordprocessor.  

Save As to a new name.  (e.g. conf.file.old)

Reload file under original name.
Edit.  Save.  Close Kwrite.

I believe that KDE 4.x.x operates in a similar way.
