Um... and just in case you are newer to Linux than you look... after running

Or xdm, if you don't want to get GNOME or KDE.  I haven't checked the
dependencies (since I do't use xdm or gdm) but I'd be very afraid of
installing a huge forest of unwanted crap to get the twig that is
kdm, for instance.

Here is the depends line for KDM.

Depends: kdelibs4 (>= 4:3.3.1), libart-2.0-2 (>= 2.3.16), libc6 (>=
2.3.2.ds1-4), libfam0c102, libgcc1 (>= 1:3.4.1-3), libice6 | xlibs (>>
4.1.0), libidn11 (>= 0.5.2), libpam0g (>= 0.76), libpng12-0 (>=
1.2.8rel), libqt3c102-mt (>= 3:3.3.3), libsm6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0),
libstdc++5 (>= 1:3.3.4-1), libx11-6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0), libxext6 | xlibs
(>> 4.1.0), libxrender1, libxtst6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0), zlib1g (>=
1:1.2.1), debconf (>= 1.2.9), kdebase-bin, libpam-runtime (>= 0.76-14),

Except for kdelibs and libart, all of those packages would already be
installed on a machine that had any sort of GUI.
