[PLUG] Kubuntu vs. Debian Lenny

There are backports of kde4 for Lenny, but if you want the latest software, install testing and add the unstable repository to sources.list.
kde4 is now in unstable, although there may be a few things in experimental still.
create apt.conf in /etc/apt as

APT::Default-Release "testing";
APT::Cache-Limit 25000000;

set cache limit where you want it
this pins you at testing

to install kde4, try sudo apt-get -s -t unstable kde4 and see where it takes you
you may need to learn how to manipulate apt-get when it tells you there are "broken packages"
you just keep working apt-get commands and things might work out
let me know if you try this and get stymied
