Default What next? I need a desktop. Want Gnome.

OK, I got to the point where it is time to re-boot. I do that and get the command prompt. So the guide says it's time to customize. I created a non-root user/pwd. I initialized the ssh. I got into basic configuration: I got into 5.15 -- Using packages from pkgsrc, entered the command to point to the repositury exactly as stated in the guide. I also browsed the repository in both http and ftp modes. Can't find a package for gnome. Found a whole bunch related to gnome, but which is the current one for the desktop that will install everything at once? Is the guide wrong when it tells how to specify the repository? Maybe someone can give the correct statement to set the repository, and then the correct statement to install gnome for the current 5.1 release. Thank you very much.
