installation problem-Mandriva 2008

I have just installed Mandriva 2008.0 on a brand new Wipro PC. the PC already has Vista installed and i have made it dual boot. the grub starts up normally and when i select Mandriva it starts up normal. but when i see the desktop there are no icons on it. if i logout and then in session type select kde then i m not able to log in. though when i go to mandriva control centre i can see kde packages installed. kindly help out.

In Mandriva control center, in the package installation tool, make sure either "task-gnome" or "task-kde" is installed. Alternately, you can also select "task-ede", "task-e17", or "task-xfce". And in addition, you could install "task-3ddesktop", but tyt will be when you have at least one working 2D desktop.

That's for Mandriva 2008.0. Hopefully 2008.1 is not too different.
