Logging on?


Hello,

Very new to linux so please forgive my ignorance.

I am trying to put mandrake 10.1 on my PC.

Installation went fine, but I cannot seem to login to the desktop

Im sure when I've installed linux before (may be Redhat or SuSe) I got a proper login screen GUI.

What Am I not doing?

Many Thanks

Stuart

Also, I have tried Fedora Core FC3 and get the same problem??

Use the command "xorgconfig" to configure the x server. When done, run "startx" to start it.
