KDE in slackware 9

I'm having trouble loading KDE, I've run through xf86config and when I use startx I get an error saying 'could not start kdeinit, check your installation.'

I have no idea what it means by 'check your installation'

please help, I don't want to give up on linux just because I can't get a GUI running.
