You have to tell apt that you want to use experimental packages for each
package you want to install. Experimental is an unstable unstable dist
and those packages might not even work at all and break your system.

Example apt source lines:
### Experimental packages
ftp://ftp.at.debian.org/debian/ project/experimental/main/binary-i386/ deb 
ftp://ftp.at.debian.org/debian/ project/experimental/contrib/binary-i386/ deb 
ftp://ftp.at.debian.org/debian/ project/experimental/non-free/binary-i386/

Don't forget to substitute "at" with your country code, to get to a mirror 
near you and you won't need the "contrib" and "non-free" lines for kde at all.

If you know what you do, try:
apt-get install kdelibs3/experimental libkdenetwork1/experimental 
konqueror/experimental kdebase/experimental korn/experimental 
konsole/experimental kmail/experimental kdebase-libs/experimental 

and then:
apt-get install kate/experimental

You should now have kde 2.2alpha1, I think.
