First Time start

I loaded VMWARE and then tried to make a virtual OS. It started loading Redhat 6.1 just fine. I get to the place where it ask what kind of Redhat I want. I click Knome Desktop. I go on through the install. I reboot and it gives me a login in Text mode. I login on Redhat 6.1. Then what?????

How do I get to the Knome Desktop??

Completely new to this.....Long time Windows user.

You could try typing startx and see if X-Windows will start for you. Hopefully X-Windows is already configured and ready to go. I have not used any version of Red Hat earlier than 7.2 so I do not for sure what is configured automatically. I have uses VMWARE somewhat in a class I took this spring but I did not install it myself.

No that didn't work either. I haven't a clue why it won't either.

Anymore suggestions? Thanks for those. I've been sidetracked for the last week or so.
