Oh, it looks promising.

To install the window system:
#apt-get install x-window-system
To configure the x-window system and generate the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
configuration file you have the following choices:
and answer the questions(this is the Debian way).
Alternatively, you can use the Xfree86 own config programs that exist
on every X installation.
# xf86cfg in graphic mode, or
# xf86cfg -textmode in text mode.
NOTE: Sometimes everything stated before fails and you need to configure
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 by hand.
You can install (optional) the session login manager:
#apt-get install gdm
#apt-get install xdm
#apt-get install kdm
X-window system install comes with a very simple window manager by
default called "twm", but probably you want something better.
You are ready now to install your favourite window manager
# apt-get install fluxbox for a low resources good window manager
# apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment for a heavy one
# apt-get install kde for another heavy one.
And you are ready.
NOTE: If you choose NOT to install a login session manager like gdm, kdm
or xdm, you have to create in your home directory a hidden file named
.xsession to launch the window manager as soon as you run "startx":
# .xsession file for starting fluxbox *******
# ***** end of .xsession
Do not forget the "&" character after every command you want to run
before the window manager starts.
Now you are ready to start your X window session typing "startx" at the
prompt as a normal user.
NOTE: Do not try to startx as root, it is not allowed for recurity
reasons (not sure).
