Then be absolutely certain NOT to select auto-login when you enter your username and password.

After the installation completes and you boot the new OS the first time, once you get to the login screen you can press Ctrl + Alt + F1 which will open a terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install gnome-panel
Press enter and follow the prompts. When the package installation is complete you can just:

sudo reboot
And then when the login screen appears again just click on the GNOME foot next to your username and select GNOME FLashback (Metacity) as the desired session.

Or you could install Lubuntu or Xubuntu instead - it's all a matter of choice.

Ok thanks! Also do you thanks you could help me with this? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2222912
