try startx

If you still get a problem copy and paste it onto here, or at least post up what error messages it gives when it drops you back to console.

but you must have a linux partition aswell no ?

anyway the important bit is no display found, check your XF86Conf file and make sure everything looks okay in there.

Note that Xwindows wont start if your HDD' are full. if you think this may be related type

# df


and post up the output.
