I installed Mandrake 8

From the console you can issue the command "startx" and it will start the X-windowing system for you.

If you wish to have the GUI login on each reboot, then you need to make sure you have a login manager installed like xdm, kdm or gdm. If you do, then you need to edit the /etc/inittab file and change the default runlevel to 5 .
