Maybe go through tasksel instead.  But the desktop task will include a
KDE as well.  Maybe go in there and look at the help.  It will tell you
what packages will be installed.  Or even better:
apt-cache search gnome | grep -v lib | grep gnome | less
That should tell you what there is to be gotten.

I would acctually suggest:

apt-get install icewm-gnome nautilus gnome 
apt-get dselect-upgrade

This should give you a basic gnome system then pull in all the
recommends(or is that suggests or both?).

IceWM is much better than sawfish (IMHO).
