Try logging in at the console and running "startx". If the GUI environment
is installed, this will start it up.

If that doesn't work, then you didn't install the GUI. To install a minimal
GUI, log in as root and run:

apt-get install x-window-system

You may also want to install the KDE or Gnome desktops (or both). The
commands for those are:

apt-get install kde
apt-get install gnome
