Normally, when installing you are asked whether you want to run a
desktop or server etc.  the alternative is to install the various
packages individually using aptitude.  As root do:

# aptitude install x-window-system-core kdebase 

which will get you started.  Alternatively, run aptitude interactively:

# aptitude

which will enable you to explore what packages are available.  Try 'man
aptitude' for further info.
