As I have not used X on this machine, I simply did:
1.  apt-get install kde
      [all as root, naturally]
2.  wait....
3.  X -configure
4.  X -config /root/xorg.conf.new
5.  cd /etc/X11
6.  mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.orig
7.  cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
8.  useradd barnett
9.  passwd barnett
10.  invoke-rc.d kdm start
11.  go to console
12.  login as "barnett"

Worked fine for me.  Only ran it for 5-10 minutes-ish without issue, but 
KDE version 3.5 came up and was functioning fine as far as I can see.

Please find attached xorg_config_files_sparc.tbz2, which is a tar, bzip2 
file containing xorg.conf.orig and xorg.conf [i.e. the one generated in 
step 3 and copied into place at step 7.

Hope it helps.

The problem is Xorg even crashes running X -configure on stable.  On unstable/testing, the problem is the lines all over the screen.  Maybe I will have to pick up an Ultra 10.
