This page contains a lot of info and good links.
I have installed kde 3.0.3 twice on 2 different partitions and the last time
it was fairly
easy following the instructions of the site above.
I fist deleted the previous version so i wouldn't have to wrestle with
apt-get for
(found somewhere via page described above)
to remove kde 2: apt-get --purge remove kdelibs3 libarts
to remove kde 3: apt-get --purge remove kdelibs4 libarts1

Also, you might want to install a bit easier via aptitude. It's a nice gui
more understandable to the average user.

Remember that if anything goes wrong that you can always play with the
preferences file to pin a stable release of kde and revert back to it
( pin priority > 1000 )
