You only need to do : apt-get install xorg and apt-get install 'de' ,
as root, where 'de' will be the desktop environment or window manager
you want, e.g. i want kde so i will do apt-get install xorg and
apt-get install kde .

Then you must start x and your de/wm so if you have installed kde or gnome run:
/etc/init.d/kdm start or /etc/init.d/gdm start respectively as root
and if you have installed a simple wm put into your .xinitrc that
exec 'wm'
where 'wm' will be the window manager you have installed, e.g.
exec fluxbox
and then you can run startx as a simple user.
Hope i helped you.
