it sounds like you don't know how to get xterm to open in your window manager. What window manager are you using?

Most of WMs have some sort of "run command" feature. If it does, type "xterm" and you should get a terminal.

try typing konsole. Its good because you can copy and paste into it which saves time typing long file names.

Open a terminal (xterm, for example) and then type:

Code:
xterm
at the prompt. That should do it.



Sorry I couldn't resist...Serioulsy though, right click on the desktop (it should be KDE if you went with the Mandrake default) and one of the items in the menu should be "Run ..." or something like that. Click that and then enter "xterm" in the box that appears. This is provided you have xterm installed, in case that you don't try typing "konsole" in the box (like someone else suggested) as this will start the KDE default terminal emulator.
