Need Help Configuring Mandrake

Hi Everyone I just started using this program Virtual PC to Host Linux on my windows system Everything was installing fine untill I had to configure my Graphics card I think the correct term is bootloader Something crashed and I had to stop the program from running anyway It seems to be working fine but the xwindow system does'nt seem to want to start I don't think it was configured properly is there anyway to configure it from a shell start up or do I have to do it all over again

Anyway Thanks in Advance


PS I tried typing in startx but that did'nt work
