after logging in as root

type startx

but you should create a new user soon so you don't log in as root all the time.

you can do that in a console by typing the command adduser

cool thx, it works! im going to keep root user only, im going offline in a week. so i don't have to worry anybody hacking my machine. i boot from floppy, so i hope i wont need to reinstall no OS. got xpp, slackware and room for redhat, mabe i download mandrake 9.1 rc2. looks like i'll have alot to mess around with!
only problem i got is the resolution. trying to fix it. none works so far. to small or to much to the right side of the screen.
