I'm lost $&@#!!!!


Ok I am new here, forgive my lame approach. I searched a bit but am just overwhelmed. Ok question is... I need to know the command that will open my Mandrake/Gnome. Ok If I screwed the terminology up sorry. I know Mandrake is the distribution and Gnome is the ? Anyway. I was playing around in the settings and somehow managed to lock myself out of Gnome. All I see is a command prompt. So any suggestions would be helpful. I miss tinkerin' on my Linux... I have been locked out for 2 weeks. I just said screw it and have been booting into XP instead.

Help!!!
