I used a non-standard way last time I installed KDE, that was slightly less 

Install without a desktop.  Then edit sources.list and:

aptitude install KDE

Go and do something else for a bit.

Check that everything mission-critical is there.  If not install.

In my case:

aptitude install cups k3b
