Fedora 16 Live interface?

I just put Fedora 16 Live on a CD and booted with it. Previous versions of Fedora Live came up with a gnome like interface which I am used to. This came up with something strange and although I think I could figure out how to use it, I would like to have my familiar gnome desktop. In particular, I want to have multiple workspaces.

Can anyone direct me to basic instructions about how to use Fedora 16 Live?

GNOME Shell (I assume this is what you have) uses dynamic workspaces, put something in the last workspace and a new one will appear. Empty a workspace, and it will dissapea.

Re: Fedora 16 Live interface?

If you are looking for old gnome like interface, you would have install cinnamon after installting fedora. Take a look at this thread.

The alternative is to use gnome-shell-frippery.
