Hi Tom,

Could you try the following command to start kde from a terminal window.

xinit /opt/kde3/bin/startkde -- :0

That should start kde, then have a look at the
Control Centre -- System --login manager

At least the above should get kde working.

Also have a look to see if your WINDOWMANAGER env variable is set.
graham@merlin:~> set | grep WINDOW

if not try exporting it; e.g.
export WINDOWMANAGER=/usr/X11R6/bin/kde
and then try running startx
