Any specific reason for you to chose LILO over grub?

How is it different? I guess all of them would be using network
manager. But KDE would be doing it differently than GNOME.

No, debian does not discourage KDE. There is a separate installation
disk that installs KDE by default. Try that.

debian-6.0.4-i386-kde-CD-1.iso at
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/6.0.4/i386/iso-cd/ it is just
alphabetical listing of files by apache and no debian fault in showing
it below gnome :)

There is no unfair game here, it may just be that there is not enough
contributors working on KDE. In my experience KDE team is much better
than GNOME team (KDE team gets new releases faster than GNOME, KDE
releases are better coordinated and they come in one go, where as
GNOME upgrades are broken most of the time and takes longer).

You have to keep reminding your government that you don't get your
rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.
