I have always installed the desktop stuff after installing a base system so
I'm not sure how the installer goes about installing gnome.
Hopefully "apt-get remove gnome/xorg/alsa-base" (as needed) will do it for
you. That may leave a few bits & pieces but I think that'll get most of it
Seems that I'll better go for the clean solution of a reinstall (it
won't take that long anyway) but I must thank everyone for their time
