Better discuss this on the debian-kde list, but right it's a user issue
as well :-)
Are there kde packages installed, which version?
Run dpkg -l "*kde*" to find that out.
Maybe you have installed kde and it simply does not start?
For sure, not all X packages are installed that you need.
Do you jave any xclients/xdm/kdm things?
The other thing is:
The kde packages in woody have been a lot in transition lately:
2.2.0 -> 2.2.1 -> 2.2.2
As you should not mix kde packages from different versions, most kde
woody users have problems. I have solved that by getting the kde
packages from sid/unstable.
