Login and type startx. When you installed, it seems that you deselected the option to start X at startup.

Mandrake 6.0 is more than 6 or so years old. Why not get a newer distribution.

Reddazz is right... Get something a little more recent... Where did you get it from anyway??? If it's a hardware req issue... there are still newer distros that will install fine on older hardware...

You can download from their websites or purchase from cheap CD retailers. If you are going the Redhat way, download Fedora instead of Redhat 9 or below because Fedora replaced the old Redhat Linux.
