That's simple.. just edit /etc/inittab. Simply use what i wrote earlier, except you'll want to delete the 3 and insert a 5 (it was the other way around at first).
here i'll just paste it in so you don't have to search back for the post
You'll look at the top of the file for this
# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by Mandrakelinux are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 4 - unused
# 5 - X11
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
Make that 3 (or whatever you have) into a 5
, by pressing the following keys after you put the cursor over that number
Now just reboot the computer ("shutdown -r now") and it should work.
You've just become less of a

(though calling you a newbie would imply that i am not
one, but i am - i'm still learning like everyone else
