I now have KDE3 installed and running on Sarge. Installing
libsensors-1debian1 manually enabled the installation of kde-core
# apt-get -t unstable install kde-core
And, the upgrade went perfectly from KDE 2.2.2 to KDE 3.1.3. Apt
removed some packages, installed some new ones, and upgraded some.
Thanks a bunch!
