Install ffmpeg... Only to Uninstall gnome?


I am attempting to install ffmpeg via Terminal but I keep coming across messages stating the removal of gnome from my system. I need ffmpeg in order to convert videos via the command line but I am worried about accidentally destroying my laptop. My system is running the x86_64 version of Debian GNU/Linux Squeeze.

If I install ffmpeg and remove gnome, what will happen?

Thank you to anyone who can answer this question!
