Try the cmd
startx
when the 'terminal' screen appears (after logging in).

Also, check the contents of /etc/inittab file (yep, 2 't's there).
Should have a line that reads

id:5:initdefault:

If yours says '3' instead of '5', you'll need to (as root user) change that 3 to a 5 using your favourite editor.
