The only stupid question is the unasked one?
How to install kde3:
Losing window managers... I don't think you lost your other window managers,
but if you upgraded to kdm from the kde3 debs, you may have found that your
other window managers were not displayed as options in kdm. This was because
the early packages did not automatically include your installed wm's in the
list (they had to be added manually). I think the newer packages fixed this.
If you have any other troubles with kde3, for example kdm not starting
(example taken from your email), can you post here (debian-kde) so we can fix
it/hlep you, please?
I don't believe you have to remove your kde2 packages first, but it has been
suggested that one should use aptitude/dselect or similar instead of apt-get
to upgrade to kde3.
