You might try to find out installable and working grome packages here.
Keep adding dated lines to sources.list like that sample one:
deb http://snapshot.debian.net/archive/2004/03/19/debian unstable \
main contrib non-free
(this is snapshot of unstable for 19 March 2004) ... untill you're happy with
the output of 'apt-get install gnome -s'

I guess you should start from:
