Installed TRIX BOX, How do I use it?

I Installed TRIX BOX from the latest Linux mag and It boots I lonin as root then nothing but a command line? What do I do to use the OS. I want it to be my primary OS but I can't get a desktop. I tried every start command I can think of. Does anyone know what I need to do?

Don't know about that, but the trixbox wiki website says:

"trixbox is a telephony application platform based on Asterisk Open Source PBX Software. The trixbox application platform makes it fast and simple to install and configure your business-class telephony system. ..."

Also, the wiki has other information you'll probably want to look over.

Google always helps when you can't figure something out.

He quadruple (possibly more) posted this same thing... and several people have explained that this distro is unsuitable for Desktop use. But he apparently can't read these forums any better than he can the website for the distro.

And I am pretty sure it doesn't ship with X, it is a server system after all.

I suspect a case of STFW is needed.
