Bug#511287: debian-installer: Should have a task for installing KDE or XFCE instead of Gnome


IMHO, it's too late to change things now for Lenny. But I guess, we'll need to 
re-discuss the situation after Lenny release for KDE 4 series.

Especially when I read this:

and the nice screenshot here:

The link exist: on the left, in the menu, under "Try KDE!", "KDE 3.5"  is the 
direct link to http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/kde3.html

Thanks, we will update the instructions for Lenny.
