I had the same problem the first time i tried the live style. I did it twice on 2 different machines with the same result as you. I have adopted the debian style since then on 3 installs with no such problem. One thing to note is that you have to delete the old gnome session files once you get up and running if you want a "normal" desktop.

About two weeks ago I downloaded Gnoppix and burnt the ISO on CD-rom, no problems whatever with booting from it etc. Yesterday I installed it on my laptop.
It gives you then the option, something like:

1. Install old style Debian
2. Install like live CD Gnoppix style

So I picked the 'Gnoppix style install' and everything went well. When I boot into my fresh installed system, it seems like Gnome takes a lot of time starting up and then it just sits there, leaving me with a Gnome background image and a mouse and no icons or anything else. The mouse just moves, nothing more.
With CTRL-F keys I can change to a prompt.

Is this normal after an installation? I'd like to have the same desktop in Gnome after installation, like I have
when I start up my Live CD. Any suggestions?
