Oops, my bad. My disk actually had an Apple_partition_map by my brain

I let the installer use all of my free space and it successfully
installed the base system and bootloader. However, during the second
stage of the installation, I was asked to select additional software -
Desktop, etc. I selected Desktop and print server and I received some
errors, the final was said it was unable to install the selected
packages. I proceeded to finish the installation anyway and it looks
like I have a working system, sans graphical desktop. I'll have to
instal these manually. Hopefully there's some kind of meta package
for installing all of the needed packages for a gnome or kde desktop?
Or, perhaps some way to re-run the second stage of the installer?
Back to the documentation....
Use aptitude and install (search with "/' - supports regxp - , select it
and press "+") the gnome-destop-environment or the gnome package. Same
I had a favourite quote, but I forgot it. And it was insightful.
