Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have recently upgraded Debian to Sarge, and I am having some of the same problems again...
you are not having any problems, you are just clueless for lack of reading, after this, go to debian.org and read, start with documentation, IRC's #debian and everything pertaining to your problems, Debian is not a bag of tricks, it is well organized in a logical way.
KDE is gone. It was removed during the upgrade. However, so is XDM and KDM...So how do I change Window Managers for the command "startx"
Now, debian.org will tell you that different versions, have different packages, and you can verify this if only you look at the packages list in Woody and Sarge and check the APT-HOWTO, to check if you did the dist-upgrade correctly.
XDM is part of the 'x-window-system', it should be there.
But all this is irrelevant because the answers to your questions already been answered by helpful souls prior to this. Look at the answers Dead Parrot and dopefish gave you, and apply them with your new situation.
