The plot thickens. After sending that email, I alt+tab over to konsole to 
tell kubuntu no, i don't want to uninstall all that stuff now.  A thought I 
hit n, for no, but appearantly I hit y+enter or just enter(Y being the 
default), so every thing uninstalled.  I then deledted all the mozilla 
folders, and then typed sudo apt-get install firefox, and only firefox 
installed.  If I try to reinstall gnome* ubuntu-desktop or others, then 
abunch of other stuff installs, particularly openoffice.org packages.  I 
don't want this because I removed the openoffice packages that came with 
kubuntu since the base program didn't work properly.  I downloaded OO from 
the openoffice.org site to get the program working properly.  That being 
said, I still have gdm installed and the gnome applications that I use so 
the things that were uninstalled with firefox aren't missed.  I just wish I 
would have figured it out before posting.  Oh well, things are working so I 
will keep on working.
Thanks all
