I have installed Mandrake Linux9 by Expert mode.Though i did all steps successfully. When i restart my linux system after installation it load it and the prompt automatically goes to text menu. I login it as my user name and then write "KDE" after $ which moved to GUI Mode.
Durning installation linux gives me an option "Bootloader main Options" and i choos
"Lilo with Graphical menu" . The problem which i want to ask is why linux does't automatically moves to GUI (X Windows) directly ?

shutdown. In text mode I write logout and it succesfuly logout.Plz let me guide that how can i shut down my system via Graphical interface and what is the reson that it does't show me the Interface option button to shutdown.
