Ubuntu-Netbook Edition 10.04-How to change to Gnome desktop and back?


I just downloaded Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 and am running it from a usb flash drive on my Acer laptop.
At times I'd like to use the Gnome desktop. I know with the previous version there was a way to change to Gnome. Is there still a way to change to Gnome on the 10.04 version and if so how do I change to Gnome and back to Netbook Edition desktop? Thanks.

I have never used UNR; but with a quick google search I found:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9217374 (See post #4).
Hope this helps.

Just out of curiosity, if you want the standard Ubuntu Gnome desktop, then why don't you just install the regualr Ubuntu (with Gnome) instead of UNR?
Just because you have a netbook, this does not mean that you must install UNR. You cloud install any flavor if the *buntu family if you want.
