access GUI using Mandrake 9.1

I have made the crossover!!! I am determined to learn how to use Linux. the only thing is I can not get to the GUI, using Mandrake 9.1. I know cmd line is like what the gurus use but if I am to introduce this to my clients I need to show them something familiar. Mahalo for your help.

Aloha Garry

If you want to change this, once in the GUI, look in the Mandrake Control Centre's Boot options for DrakBoot, and it has a simple tick box which'll change the option. Or you can edit a 3 to a 5 in /etc/initttab
