Angry think i deleted gnome desktop environment on FC5


I was running "update or remove software" from the administration menu, planning to add an email program. I believe I inadvertently uninstalled my gnome desktop at the same time.

I boot up to the Gnome login screen but when i log in it takes me to a TWM environment, not my normal Gnome desktop. The only options showing in "Change session" at the login screen are: Last Session, System default and terminal.

I was going to use YUM to re-install but am not sure what the package name should be.
