Help this poor little dumbf*ck out!
I've had it up to here with Windows that's why my main OS is Linux. Just made the switch. Because of Windows I had to reformat my HDD and start all over again which is a usual Windows ritual because Windows can't handle too many programs on its partition. But anyways, I installed Linux Mandrake 9.1 again and thought I chose the boot login and everything else the same as I did last time but apparently I didn't, I done something different. Everything boots up just fine, I get all "OK"'s when booting but I get to a non-graphical interface whereas I login successfully but can't get to the GUI and being pampered by Windows all these years you get scared of those and get stuck and don't know what to do. I tried "help" and couldn't even figure out how to do the Linux version of "dir /p" so I could read alittle at a time and couldn't figure out anything. Can someone please tell me how to get out of the text interface at boot and get to the GUI Linux screen so I'll know what I'm doing. Thank you.
