Probably a dumb question


Hi,
i have been searching the net for an hour trying to find out how to get into the Topologilinux GUI!... I installed it a few days ago but i cant work out how to get past the command prompt screen (like dos)

i tried typing startx and a few other things but nothing seems to work.... the isnt even a text file that comes with Topologilinux explaining how to get into the gui....

any help will be appreciated very much btw, as you can probably tell, im a complete newbie to linux so try to dumb down any answer i have only installed Microsoft OS's before

thanks

Did you look at the homepage or the About Page? They may help.
