After I finished the "netinst" install, I could not get a KDE desktop even 
though I had KDE installed, I kept getting Nautilus.
I had to get rid of a slew of packages in order to get a KDE desktop.  I don't 
want a Gnome desktop though I like some of the apps for Gnome.

am unable to do what I once did in order to get nvidia working.
