First of all I generally use dselect for installing 'cos it handles all
the dependencies.  I've now successfully installed KDE 3.1 on 2 PC's and 
a Mac G4 all running woody. 

Add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1.1/Debian stable main

then do:

apt-get update
apt-get install kdm kdebase

I've tended to install this over a basic system.

Then go into dselect to choose the bits you want.  Take care with the
dependencies various lib files conflict with previous versions.  Often
when using dselect since, it has tried to remove a whole raft of KDE3.1
packages.  However, if you work through it, it works.

I've been using KDE3.1 on my G4 for two or three months now and I am so happy
with it, I've been able to move most of my work from MacOSX to Debian ;)
