I remember that SuSE stores kde-2.x settings in ~/.kde2. Did you copy 
this to ~/.kde in the debian-home?

I also did the suse->debian transission. There where also differences 
for other programms like xemacs. Also .bashrc and friends have 
differences. You may have to look at them too.

I also used to use sax. I think except its not graphical
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
(for woody) is as good as sax2.

Did you try it?


PS. By the way. On my laptop suse 7.0 failed completely because it
didn't know the ati mobility chip. But xf86config for Xfree86-3.x did
the job.
