Question Lost on install

Hi, I have just installed Suse-10.3. I had no problem installing it choosing mainly default setting because I don't know anything about Linux. Once the installation was finished it rebooted to a black page and a login prompt at the bottom of the page. I wrote my user and password and instead of going into a see and click window, a third prompt. I don't have a clue what to write to that one.

You'll want to try "startx" (no quotes) to get a GUI. If there are any errors, post them here so we can help you to fix them.
