YES, Great Success!

I managed to load xfce GUI!

Now, the problem is that I cant access the Internet. It seems this issue has something to do with the previous inability of being unable to "apt-get" anything from the text mode. So far, everything I get is from the installation CD.

How can I get the Internet working?
