I did "apt-get install kde", which ran, but still no gui.
I edited inittab to default to runlevel 5 and rebooted.
I then did "dpkg-reconfigure xerver-xfree86" and it said no such package was installed, so I apt-got that. Then I configured it.
I entered "startx" and it tried to start, but died saying there was no font server. Helpfully, the message also mentioned that beginning users should install package "x-window-system". So I apt-got that, and went through some more config screens.
Rebooted again, and was greeted with a gui and xdm login screen. Logged in and it took me right to KDE.
Thanks for the tip, I hope this helps somebody.
