Re: Help! - simple solution
The installer should have asked you if you want to install a "Desktop
Environment" , "Web Server" etc.
To get to that screen:
type "su" and press enter. type in your 'root' or admin password (you
typed it in during install). you will become the *S*uper *U*ser
type "tasksel" and press enter. now you can should select "Desktop
Environment" for a graphical desktop, "File Server" if you want to share
files over the network, "Print Server" if you wish to use a printer.
if you wish to redo the complete second half of the installation ( which
will not re-install anything ), type "base-config" instead of "tasksel"
after installing a desktop environment, type "/etc/init.d/gdm start" or
reboot the machine by typing "reboot"
Debian GNU/Linux can be a bit hard on new users... so don't hesitate to
ask here if you have a problem. and you might want to use more
appropriate subjects lines that 'Help' ;)
