Help: Removed Alsa

I used synaptic to remove Alsa. After I did that Synaptic just quit, and I couldn't start an xterm.
I restarted the computer. Instead of my regular log in, it popped up a very basic log in. Where you can't even choose your desktop (kde, or gnome).
After I logged in, All I see is the xterminal window. I don't see any menus, icons, or anything.
I used yum to reinstall synaptic, which in turn installed alsa and bunch of other stuff. That didn't fix anything.
What happened?!?

it says bash: ... : command not found.
Tried as regular user and as superadmin.
Also let me clarify.
I'm in some kind of gui. All the windows are open in some special window.

I installed gdb with Synaptic, and run that. Now my usual log in screen is back. Although under sessions instead of it saying KDE, GNOME, Default. All it has is Default and FailSafe. Maybe some config file was changed?
How can I start the Add/Remove utility from command prompt? Maybe I can reinstall gnome and KDE from CD's.
I thought of doing that with Synaptic, but not sure which files to install.
