| you didn't provide much information on
what are the packages you installed.
| anyway, here goes...
| from my memory of the install process, the
first time the install starts,
| the installer installs the base system that
consists of kernel stuff,
| drivers and all.
| then it reboots to run off your hard disk.
this is when it preselects
| certain packages to install, while asking
you whether you want to use the
| SIMPLE or ADVANCED options to install
extra packages. if you choose SIMPLE
| you will find a whole list of task items that
you can select. (if you don't
| select any now and continue installation,
you can do the same later. to do
| it later, type tasksel in the shell (text
| if in SIMPLE installation you do not choose
any of the graphical options
| i.e. task x-windows(complete), or task x-
windows(core components), then you
| won't have the graphical prompt (X
windows) you talked of.
| hope this helps.
