	From my experience, using "stable", "unstable", "frozen/testing" is a bad
idea. Use the release name. It's safer. This way, if/when frozen goes stable,
you won't find yourself running a fully beta release, unexpectedly.

	There's conversation later on in the list about multiple mirrors. I won't
comment on the validity of it, but using multiple mirrors bit me in the arse
months and months ago.

	First recommendation is to edit the sources.list and run an apt-get update
to bring your package list up to current. Then try something like this:

Dir=~ pts/4$ apt-cache search kde | grep "kde "
fluxbox-kde - Highly configurable and low resource X11 Window manager for KDE
junior-kde - Debian Jr. for KDE
kde - The K Desktop Environment
licq-plugin-kde - Graphical front-end plugin for LICQ using Qt2+KDE
wordtrans-kde - Multi Language Word Translator for Linux

	As you see here, kde DOES exist (on my box). But you could be running into
some conflicts with the multi-mirror stuff. (shrug)
	Once your available packages list is current/correct, you 'should' be able
to run the 'apt-get install kde' w/o complaint.

	Good Coding....
