First thing, you need to make sure you have universe source list under /etc/apt/sources.list.

To install kubuntu-desktop use the following command in a terminal window:

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

During this installation process, you will be asked whether you want to use KDM or GDM as your default display manager. If you think you’ll use KDE, make KDM your default. If you think you’ll use Gnome, keep GDM as your default. You can always switch between the two, once it's installed.

3 months? If it would be quicker, I will send you a Kubuntu 7.10 disc from the UK by airmail for free.
Let me know.
