There is the answer.

"gdm" (installed by default in Sarge) provides more options than in
Woody.  It offers not only Gnome but also KDE (and any other display
manager that is installed).

Now all that I need to do is to tweak the console for the permissions to
load the display manager of _my_ choice (fvwm2 + fvwm-themes).

Thank you for the help.
