Unhappy Phat LinuX Please Help

Hi... I'm a for LinuX and I installed Phat LinuX in my computer. I finally set up all the hardware I found and then got to a place with a big picture in the right hand side and some info about my computer in left hand side. I enterd the user name "root" and set up a new password. Then I got to a thing like a command prompt. The prompt says " [root@phatBoX root]# " I dont know what to do at this point... It's like command prompt that you can type stuff.

Please Help !!! Tell me what to do...
