I guess you can.. just use apt-get to do whatever you want ..

it could be something like
root@1[knoppix]# apt-get install -t unstable gnome-core
or run "apt-cache search gnome" for more info

Good luck

root@**********:/home/knoppix# apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gnome-desktop-environment: Depends: epiphany-browser (>= 1.0) but it is not going to be installed or
galeon (>= 1.3)
E: Broken packages


this is what i get, i have done a apt-get update but not a dist upgrade as the warnings scared me! lol
