Fresh net install


This is my first time installing linux and really using linux. I have erad alot so I have a basic feel for whats going on.
I just installed the latest debain sarge net install. I selected desktop under the package options, thinking it would install a gui but it did not. So I did apt-get install kde, and it did its thing. But I cant figure out how to get it to boot up to kde.

Check to see if you installed a login manager. Try "apt-get install kdm"

There are other managers available, but I'm quite fond of kdm.

No it should start automatically every time you boot Debian. If it doesn't (screen flashes then end up at command line again) then you may have a incorrectly configure x server.
