ALL DESKTOP ENVIRONMENTS IN A SINGLE CD

Am a bit worried about the fact that,if i need a KDE environment,i have got to get another CD.
Is it possible to have a cd with all the 5 environments?or can i make my gnome have other environments instead of reinstalling? :?

Re: Help for a complete novice (SOLVED)

Yap.Lets say u want to install amarok.If at terminal,it does not recognize that it is installed,thenit will give you the sudo apt-get install command.Do this instead of of downloading then installing later.

By the way,Using Linux is simpler than using Windows,but that is after you get used to it.
