after installing the packages, one of the menu's will ask what window manager you want to use....Gnome, KDE, XFCE, etc..........
and Slackware also boots by default to runlevel 3, the command will have to edit the /etc/inittab file and set the runlevel to 4 if you want to boot to a GUI.........Gnome, KDE, etc.......
