You should have no problem installing both KDE and Gnome. I have several computers that, each, have multiple desktop environments installed.

I run PCLinuxOS, so I cannot tell you the exact process to accomplish the same thing in Debian, but I cannot imagine that it would be much different. Our packagers have created one-stop installation packages for each of the desktop environment, so for me to install Gnome, LXDE, XFCE, Enlightenment, or any other desktop environment, I would only have to install the respective package, e.g., task-lxde.

To select them for use, from your GDM or KDM login screen, you select the desktop environment that you want to use for that session from the Session menu.

I hope this helps!

I know how to use apt-get I meant how to install both of them during debian installation because I didn't find any package selection during installation but fedora has this step during installation and do not want to download it from internet I want to install it from DVD.

You can install packages from the dvd using apt-get after the system is up and running.

Install the main system, which includes gnome. After the new system boots up, you can use apt-get install kde to install kde. There is no individual package selection during the Debian install.
