Ummm, at a very high level I'd say
1: Install Debian - if the installer asks you at any stage for a choice of
desktop, choose KDE.
2: If the installer didn't ask you to choose a desktop, then run the
$ apt-get install kde ( or if that doesn't work, apt-cache search kde, and
see what you can install to get KDE.
I'm not sure where you're having trouble, so I'm not going to go any deeper
than that, until you supply more details.
