loading linux from [root@user root]

I am running linux red hat 7.2 server with kde desktop, but since I connected to internet and reboot it shows messages like "You Have Email" (after I log in) so ended up like [root@user root]
The question I want to pose is :
1. how do i load to linux from that prompt..?

I hope you can understand my words here..

Any respond would be appreciated.

Type startx

I'm assuming you mean how do you get to your gui environment. startx will start X for root, kdm or gdm will start your login manager. If you want to change this, open your /etc/inittab and run a search on this site for what to change, it's different for some distros.

You can read the email with mutt, or pine, or even just type 'mail' and you can read it if that's what you mean.
