Upgrading to KDE3 is a bit more complicated than that at the moment. There is 
no meta-package that will give you all of kde, nor one which will give you a 
working kde3 system (AFAIK). You could do worse than to follow the 
instructions at http://calc.cx/kde.txt and install a few more of the 
meta-packages at the top of the page.

But in answer to your immediate question, kdeinit is in the package 
kdelibs4-bin (try meta-package kdelibs), and ksmserver is in the package
