I have just setup xorg.conf and xterm works nice with my screen resolution
so I would like to now get gnome up and working

so I
emerge gnome xscreensaver

and I get an error
!!! Error: the sys-kernel/linux-headers package conflicts with another package.......

I know that you can use 2.4 kernel headers with 2.6 but not the other way around.....so
I really dont want to replace my kernel with 2.6 at this time for different reasons

how can I get past this issue to install gnome and xscreensaver
I would really like to get gnome emerged, so what should I do?? Thanks alot!

Post more of the error output - unless we know which package requires the conflicting 2.6 headers on yoru system, we can only guess...
Perhaps best it'd be to post the output of
Code:
emerge --pretend --verbose --tree gnome xscreensaver
