Whee, got lots of help on that one.  And a couple easy fixes.
Thank you all.

Now I can startx but now I get put into a kde session.  I'd sooner set
my hair on fire, and I'm mostly bald.

I guess I should uninstall all the kde stuff but I seem to recall
there being a problem with some of them like the libs or base, that
allow some other things to work.

All I really want is to use gnome/sawfish if in X.  When I say
`startx' thats what I want to start.  I vaguely remember there being
some place where you put a desktop choice and then its settled.

Does debian have something like that too?

I've noticed that it will take a couple of hours to get this to you, but...
what your looking for is .xsession or the .xinitrc
