of course yes.
There are instructions at http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/old/xtut.html
You may use either Xnest -ac:1 or X -ac:1 to have an X server
listening for your
KDE/Gnome or some else graphical session.
Once your X display has been activated (try to do Xnest -ac:1), once your UML
instance is running, make sure such a window manager is installed.
export DISPLAY="x.x.x.x:1" where x.x.x.x is your host IP. You also have to
enable networking in your UML instance too using tuntap.
Finally you may start (for example) KDE simply running startkde on your UML.
