It sounds like you're up and running. Try typing 'startx' without the quotes and see what happens.

Enter you username and password then enter "startx". Did you install a login manager such as gdm or kdm?

Concur with reddazz. Guessing but it look like during the install you either didn't select a graphical interface or for some reason it isn't starting what you may have installed by default.

For sake of truth. This prompt indicates the OS is up and running and you have "entered" successfully.

Do you use lilo or grub ? it says that it can't find the kernel ! you'll have to reinstall lilo or change parameters in grub. Check out documents available in the internet.
