Try installing a desktop manager:
apt-get install kdm
You can start it by typing "kdm" from a console as root, but the next time you re-boot the computer, the kdm login screen should appear automatically. You can eneter your user name and password and select which of the installed desktop environments you would like to use (kde, gnome, etc)
