You will probably run into some dependency problems. If all you want is
the updated Gnome stuff, edit /etc/apt/sources.list to change from warty
to hoary and do an update. Then install the 'gnome' package, which
should pull in the rest of the default Gnome packages. You can then
install any remaining packages you need. This will ensure that you get
the correct dependencies and will be much quicker than individually
installing the packages.
After you complete this, you should change sources.list back to warty.
Of course, this won't get you any later updates to the new packages you
On the other hand, I recently upgraded to hoary and everything is
working fine (x-window-system-core is held back, as I want to stick with
XFree for now).
