Hi

Looks like you have installed the minimal install no desktop, That is why you only have a root prompt

Iso for 32 bit machine http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/6/isos/i386/

64 bit http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/6/isos/x86_64/

If you download he DVD1 iso it provides a desktop

Sorry it looks like you could get a desktop just select the dektop option Although the above links are for centos 6.4 latest

You are logged in as root from your first post so it looks like it is working. However, if you selected a minimal installation many things may be "missing". Please define what you mean by not workable.

May I suggest reinstalling and changing the installation type to a more appropriate choice. You also might want to customise the installation to include desired software not installed by default.

init 0 & init 6 are poweroff and restart, they take you nowhere.

if you are new to terminal and want something (desktop) to start with, then follow this steps,
  1. Insert DVD/ISO
  2. Mount the DVD/ISO if its not mounted:
    • # mkdir -p /media/centosdvd
    • # mount /dev/sr0 /media/centosdvd (for DVD)
    • # mount -o loop <path-to-file>/CentOS-DVD1.iso /media/centosdvd (for ISO)
  3. Create Repo file
    • # vi /etc/yum.repos.d/centosdvd.repo
    [centosdvd]
    name=centos dvd
    baseurl=file:///media/centosdvd
    enabled=1
  4. Install packages
    • # yum groupinstall "desktop" "General Purpose Desktop" "development tools" "Office Suite and Productivity" --enablerepo=centosdvd
  5. Reboot
    • # reboot
  6. If you want to start desktop, at command prompt type
    • # startx
