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.
