KDE install on a Debian system

I want to try kde. I've done about everything I can think of to install it. It is my understanding that I should be able to select it at login... Right now, I have a choice of Debian, period. The mist is very thick right now.

If it installed you can select it at login

or login a terminal and



Install synaptic and then install from a GUI
or use

#apt-get check
#apt-get update

#man apt-get

Well... The problem solved itself, sorta... Somehow I locked up or got into a loop or I don't know what. A hard re-set didn't even help. Fresh install takes care of everything except a very few emails... The good news is that everything looks good so far and I DO like the look of KDE.
