look for the one marked KDE ;-)
for the squeeze (testing) release
if your hardware is not up to the job i.e. needs non free blobs to work
** note squeeze could be lenny or whatever you want it to be
dpkg -i the package to make it install the blobs
If you are comfortable and want to run the testing stuff you might want
http://www.sidux.com a debian sid based distro, calls itself
"What is sidux? - Debian Hot & Spicy!".
It fails to say it is KDE based, if you do choose it, you might want to
get the same package.
Enjoy your choices, however I still hate blobs in case anyone asks.
Ask if you need to know more.
