Mandrake 9.1 boots into shell prompt instead of KDE environment?


Hey guys, first post here. I just installed Mandrake 9.1 and I have the following problem. The system boots up fine but instead of booting into the KDE graphical environment, it just boots to a shell prompt asking for a login and password. I can login just fine and then run KDE by typing "kde" at the prompt, but how do I make it autostart into the KDE environment?

Thanks.
