These are required for X.  Since KDE is an X environment, you need them.

You also need AT LEAST one server.  Install the vga16 server as well as one
of the others for your video card (which one depends on your video card, X
servers are hardware dependant)

The vga16 server comes with XF86Setup, a "nice" (not really) GUI config
program.  It's much nicer (REALLY) than xf86config, and will be easier for
you to use.  Once you have configured your X server, you can install KDE.

You'd be wise to use hamm for this I think, but it should be at least
possible with bo.
