apt-get install ubuntu-desktop gives you the Gnome stuff.
Install Ubuntu instead of Kubuntu -- then apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

I wonder which is a bigger package download, kubuntu-desktop or ubuntu-desktop?

Cool. I'm glad I brought it up... as an opportunity for someone to tell me how.

I have installed both and I can tell you that Kubuntu has so few applications... it's like there isn't much there... other than KDE... and a subset of KDE at that (no kdeedu, kdegames, etc). Compared to say Knoppix (where they use miraculous compression), it is skimpy.
I have to admit though, it is good to see both install disks available.
