Do you have the X server installed? Then type "startx" in the commandline.

In Suse, I think it's preferable to use: init 5

Modify your /etc/inittab

Default runlevel

id:3:initdefault

Change it to

id:5:initdefault to run in the Graphical Mode ..

Dont type with caps lock on. Capital letters give an impression that you're shouting.
