Getting GUI (step 2)

What the hell, let's throw caution to the wind and just go with GNOME. It's a robust, widely supported GUI, although it's a little heavier than I'd like. Perhaps we can slim it down once we've got everything set up, but even if we can't, I think we'll still be well under 1Gb.

Installing GNOME is as easy as:

apt-get -t sarge-backports install x-window-system-core gnome-session gnome-applets nautilus metacity xscreensaver gdm gedit gnome-terminal

Reboot (or simply startx), and you're done.
