If you installed it with the GUI's then when you come up to the login you should log in and be taken into the GUI environment. But, try this.

Come to the login screen and press alt-s to select the interface you prefer, depending on weather you installed it with gnome or KDE or both.

Type startx

That will start the Xserver. If you want the gui to start when you start the machine, you'll have to edit this line in you /etc/inittab file: id:x:initdefault:

Change whatever x is in the above line to 5, so the new line would read:

id:5:initdefault:

Be very careful. DO NOT CHANGE IT TO 6.
