I use Slackware 9.1 with DLG, so this really won't affect me. I think since it's his distro, he can do whatever he wants with it. I really think it is the best thing he could do anyway; if he were to drop KDE instead of Gnome, I think he would lose many more Slackers.

The way I do it is by leaving out Gnome and X (and of course KDE) in the Slackware install, then running the dropline installer for Gnome. This ensures the cleanest possible system. If you just don't like DLG (I didn't at first either), well I guess you can try garnome or another install script.
