Ahhh, and suddenly the memories of my first linux experience is flooding back to me. I remember logging in as this mysterious user "root" and thinking... "okay, now what the hell do I do?".

Well dan, during the installation, it should have installed X for you, if this is the case, then you, my friend, can just type in "startx" at that [dan@localhostdan]$ and that should start up x for you. From there, it's all point and click. If you get an error like "bash: Command Not Found" then you do not have X installed, and instead of going through step-by-step on how to install it from the command line, I would suggest going through the installation again and installing X.

thanks for that
