Well, if I type "apt-get install gnome" it presents a list of packages that it will want to install (if you confirm).  Among these, I see things like "xfree86-common" and "xlibs".  I dont know exactly what all you need.  I DO know that if I do "apt-get install gnome" and accept all of the packages, and then "apt-get install vncserver", it gets everything I need to connect and run gnome over vnc.  I have also been able to use xming to run gnome sessions.

NOTE:  I don't think that there is enough room left on the 1GB disk image at http://dahlweb.net/index.php?page=cobuntu to install all of the packages that ubuntu wants to install for gnome (like 200MB of downloads, 633MB expanded).  However, doing "apt-get install xfce4" only uses 98MB of space.  And since it is a bit cleaner than gnome, it seems to run a little quicker over the slirp connection.  In any event, I suppose I should make a 4GB disk image available.  Maybe I would include the gnome packages with this by default.  Lets see how the weekend goes. ;-)

Will apt-get install gnome install an X server?  I
know colinux will not run X native, but I was unable
to use apt-get to install X base sub system.

Did you have any better luck?
