Question i don't have a desktop environment

After the installation of SuSe 8.0 Pro I didn't get a graphical but a sort of text environment (like unix). Please help me, how can I get that graphical environment?

There is an option to not install a graphical enviroment. Reinstall it and make sure you select it with a graphical enviroment. Otherwise, you'd better brush up on your greps and chmods.
