First time KDE on an iBook 2.3

I picked up one of the phased-out G3 iBooks and installed woody successfully by using the "Booting from the hard disk" method. (The CD wouldn't boot) I've added all the text-based and command line tools that I like and would now like to try getting KDE running.

I've used tasksel to try to install an "X window system" and I've tried apt-get to install KDE and related packages (wiping the partition in between). Unfortunately I get this kind of error:


	Fatal server error:
	no screens found


	XIO:  fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
	      after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

What am I missing?  Or what should I read to find out how to install KDE?
Theoretically, I should just type apt-get mozilla and then let the dependencies work themselves out.
