I removed xubuntu (xfce4*); I then managed to install KDE 3.5.3 by 
installing 'kubuntu-desktop' (I did install just the 'kde-core' package 
and 'kdm' but couldn't get to a KDE desktop) after first doing 'sudo 
apt-get --purge remove kde*' - I then added deb 
http://kubuntu.org/packages/kde-354 dapper main to my sources.list; did 
an update and then sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.
Here is the output of 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade':

The following packages have been kept back:

I then tried to install konqueror just to find out where the problem were:

nigel at laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install konqueror

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
   konqueror: Depends: kdelibs4c2a (>= 4:3.5.3-1) but 4:3.5.3-0ubuntu0.2 
is to be installed
              Depends: libkonq4 (>= 4:3.5.3-1) but 4:3.5.3-0ubuntu0.2 is 
to be installed
              Depends: kcontrol (= 4:3.5.4-0ubuntu1~dapper2) but 
4:3.5.3-0ubuntu0.2 is to be installed
              Depends: kdebase-kio-plugins (= 4:3.5.4-0ubuntu1~dapper2) 
but 4:3.5.3-0ubuntu0.2 is to be installed
              Depends: kdesktop (= 4:3.5.4-0ubuntu1~dapper2) but 
4:3.5.3-0ubuntu0.2 is to be installed
              Depends: kfind (= 4:3.5.4-0ubuntu1~dapper2) but 
4:3.5.3-0ubuntu0.2 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

Any pointers would be welcome.
