Problems Installing Mandrake 10.0

I've got through to the very end but I think I missed the part about selecting the GUI, and I believe I selected frameserver instead of the correct video display, how do I recover from this? I do get the login: prompt and can login as a user or root? just need some guidence please.

You could run the graphic setup again from the console.
As root execute: XFdrake
After you make the changes, it will ask if you want to boot into the GUI.

If booting into the GUI is the only change you want to make, change the default run level from 3 to 5 in the /etc/inittab file:
id:3:initdefault: -> id:5:initdefault:
