I guess, I'm a bit confused by your question.  Are you asking what ftp
sites you can visit to download Gnome?  I'd check out,
and then click on "Compiling GNOME".  You should also read the Gnome FAQ
as well.

Secondly, click on "Gnome FTP", and you should be able to get to the ftp
sites that have all the gnome software.  Since you are relatively new
to Linux, I would get the red hat RPMS (if you are using Red Hat Linux).

It varies.  It depends on how fancy you want GNOME to be.  I would say
32Megs minimum on a 486 machine.  I bet you can get GNOME and Linux
running on a 2Gig hard drive easily.

We all started out not knowing much, even Linus. ;)  Maybe later you'll be
a big shot GNOME developer programming some cool apps.  Good luck!
