Question Linux Boot problem

I am using Mandrake 8.2
Whenever I boot up linux it goes straight to the command line and I get the "Local Host login:" And I can never seem to get out of the terminal. I think I may have deactivated X or something. How can I fix this?
Thanks in advance to any help.

Have you tried to run the command startx to start X ??

Also you can change this by editing your /etc/inittab file. Search the forums here as this is asked all the time.
