When doing the install, it should have asked you what you'd be using the computer for.

Choices would have been similar to:

( ) Web server
( ) file server
( ) desktop enviornment
etc.

If you had selected desktop enviornment (or similar), it would have installed a GUI.

If you did this, and it's not coming up, try typing 'startx'

Otherwise:

apt-get install x-window-system desktop-base gnome

That should (IIRC) install everything you need. After that's installed, startx should get you started.

If you arn't familar with the command line, then perhaps you shouldn't be using Debian. Try something more user-friendly like Ubuntu or Fedora, that won't confuse you. wink.gif
