There's a nice little howto here:
Obviously you can ignore the parts about CVS if you have downloaded the
tarballs. You will also want to use the "--enable-final --disable-debug"
options when configuring KDE packages, and maybe "--enable-fast-malloc=full"
I've found that putting a bash script in /usr/local/bin is useful for allowing
KDE2's KDM to start KDE3:
You can then use KDE2's control centre to add a "kde3" session. You will need
to put "no-generate-sessiontypes" in /etc/kde2/kdm/kdm.options to stop KDM
from deleting your session type when it searches for new window-managers.
This may not be the "Debian Way", but I've only touched /usr/local so it is
easy to remove. :)
