If you want a desktop computer install and configure XFree86 and a windowmanager.

If you are looking for a graphical login you can either login as root and type xdm (or kdm or gdm) and then login as your user. Or you can edit the /etc/ttys file and change one of the two lines that say xdm to on and then it will come up every time you boot up.
