This basic issue (package conflicts) has been becoming more and more of
a problem.  It's not likely we can do anything about it this time around
but we'll think a bit more about what to include on the media going
forwards.  I also found Gnome2 and KDE4 are mutually exclusive due to
package conflicts, you need to select one or the other.

Just so you know - if there are issues with installing things and errors
pop up you can often quickly find what the cause of the error was by
pressing Alt-F2.  You can get back to the primary screen with Alt-F1.
