Hi!

Maybe it's RHEL server that you have?
Code:
cat /etc/redhat-release
Have you tried:
Code:
startx
after login?

cat /etc/inittab

and look for the line marked
Code:
# Default runlevel.
id:3:initdefault:
If you edit the 3 to a 5, it'll boot into Xwindows everytime.

I have encountered similar problem with dell desktop machines and Enterprise Linux 5.2.
I guess you dont have proper graphic drivers and will need to install it from dells site.
Did you get graphical interface during installation of RHEL?
