there is an option to select the "Desktop" task, but I don't know that
it differentiates between flavors of desktop. I haven't installed in
quite a while now, so I can't speak to that. You should investigate
the `tasksel` command as that's the one that allows these selections. 

Of course, you could just install the base system and then use your
favorite package manager to install the desktop/wm of your choice.
