I can't get my desktop in Slackware 10


I am using Slackware 10 which I just installed on my hard drive. I sucessfully got the bootloader to work with both Windows XP and Slackware 10. I am just having a problem actually getting into to Slackware. I select Slackware 10 and wait for it to start booting up. A few momemnts later it asks me for my username so i put in root, then enter the password, but I never get into the desktop. All I have is the command thing. How can I actually get into my desktop?
