Ok, when you boot your computer does it goes all the way to kde/gnome, or it stops in text mode?
If it stops in text mode it means that you are booting to runlevel 3, you have to change this to runlevel 4, so it will go to visual mode (start the x server) and load kde/gnome, then when you logout kde/gnome it will not go back to text mode, it will take you only to the login screen.
Check your inittab and look for this:
# Level to run in
where 2 is the default runlevel, confirm that 4 is for visual mode and that you are starting in runlevel 3, than change it.
