If you have installed correctly KDE, you should have a startkde script in 
your path. If I understood you correctly, you log in the console and do a 
startx, right?. If that is correct, modify/create a .xinitrc file in your 
home with the startkde command. Give it exec. perms and it should work

If you login using some kind of xdm clone (xdm, gdm, wdm, or whatever) you 
should read the docu. of the login manager to know where are the init. 
scripts. In gdm, take a look at the directory  /etc/gdm/Sessions/

Take a look at how X starts. man X xinit startx. Also linuxdoc.org has good 
documentation and howtos, so, Read The Fine Manual ! :-)

Hope that helps
