I'm a little confused? If you've entered your username and password and you have a command prompt then that's Linux - your there...

Did you configure X during the installation? If not you might want to try something like XF86Setup then startx if the setup goes well. This will put you into a graphical Window's like system called X, also sometimes called X Windows.

Hope that answers you're question - if it doesn't post back and tell me where I misunderstood (its not uncommon!)

cheers

Jamie...

yep, your at the command line now, its like DOS, but better. startx will start the GUI if you did configure it.
not sure of commands, you can view the man pages for commands.
www.linuxdoc.org is a good place to start as well for documentation purposes.

try xf86config to try and setup X.
and remember Linux is case sensitive when typing in commands.
