Don't know if this was suggested or tried before, but I normally install X
on my Woody system via the following:

apt-get install x-window-system

Then (or even in the same command) I install my window manager of choice

apt-get install blackbox

Then I'm left with a perfectly functional X Window install with my window
manager of choice and no extra Gnome or KDE stuff that I don't want.
