Well, to run KDE, you need for it to be installed. Im sure there are tons of ways to do this, but I guess running the follwoing might suffice (debianists will know more, google even more)
apt-get install kde*
edit: forgot about debians "stability", youll probably get KDE 2.1 if you apt-get it unless youre hooked up to "unstable" or "testing", google will tell you more if youre not familiar with debian yet.

To install kde 3.4.1 add this line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb ./

Now, if you look at that server, exists, but there is only one file in there... so I'm not sure whether the line:

deb ./

Will do anything. If you add either of those lines, type apt-get update, apt-get install kde

The Debian KDE maintainers How to install KDE 3.4.1

Why do you have to have KDE 3.4.2? Does it have some feature that 3.4 or 3.4.1 doesn't have?

It is available if you run Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but it is not stable in Debian.
