first time linux run

Hi linux folks,

I just installed mulinux, and the first time I ran it, there was a screen that asked me if I want to configure a list of packages. I said no to all of them. But then I typed startx and the system didn't recognize that word.

I guess I must have missed configuring X11 or something. So the question is how can I re-run the "first-time-startup-program". Alternatively, any method to get the system to recognize "startx" would be welcome.

Thanks for the help,

My favorite websites:
Buy and sell class notes, old exams, papers, lab reports, admission essays.
Ask and answer Linux questions.
Read free books without walking to the library.

why don't you try to re-install them?
boot from the cd again and be sure to install X and a window manager
