How to boot Slackware 13.37 from grub for first time?

Sorry this is probably a silly question, but how do I get to either a login screen or desktop gui from the grub on slackware 13.37 right after installing it?
Or what am I suppose to do next?

As long as you installed the proper packages (X & XAP) all you need to do is type: startx

This should start the GUI and you'll be on track.
