Actually, no. Using testing installer is like asking for trouble. Esp. for new 
users if testing weekly installer does something (very) wrong, this will ruin 
the first impression of Debian and just drive them somewhere else. First 
impression IS very important.

As someone already said on this thread, the best and most reliable way is to 
use stable netinstall CD to install the base OS, then change lenny to testing 
in /etc/apt/sources.list, aptitude update && aptitude full-upgrade and finally 
aptitude install kde-standard. Yeah, I know that it is not very user friendly, 
but you would have to go through similar hacks to install KDE of daily 
installer anyway since it prefers GNOME.
