I've try to use trick below in this tutorial
But when i can't login in login window with root or ubuntu (with no
pass) users. I've try "useradd -d /home/din din" before starting gdm,
it starts login but breaks with error can't create dir ~/din/Documents
~/din/Music and etc.. What can I do to see gnome?

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf edit/etc/
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf edit/etc/X11/
sudo chroot edit
mount -o none /proc
mount -o none /sys
export HOME=/etc/skel/
cd /dev/
MAKEDEV generic
/etc/init.d/dbus start
/etc/init.d/gdm start
