To change your network parameters you can use this little howto:
I don't think there is specific documentation on how to switch to Gnome,
but this could be a start:
apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment
If you feel this could be useful for others, then please write and
submit documentation once you have done a sucessful swap to Gnome :)
