Of course - just 'apt-get install task-x-window-system', which among
other things will install a display manager so you won't boot into
text-only mode. There are many, many GUI-related packages available, but
see the installation manual for how to use the packaging system to
acquire them. You might like, for example, to install
task-gnome-desktop, which will install the basic desktop from the GNOME

(Further followups should probably go to debian-user only;
Mail-Followup-To: set.)
