Well .. Im a n00b but thanks to this site , i know alot more than i did when i started ...

Well in order to get KDE or Gnome working you must start the X server .. do this by typeing startx This will launch the X server , and which ever window manager (KDE, Gnome, ect) you picked at install to be default .

xplasma is correct....The command startx will start the X server.

In Slackware to select which window manager you would like to use type 'xwmconfig' from the command line. This is an ncurses based menu for your .xinitrc file. Of course you could just edit your .xinitrc file directly in your home directory by changing the line:

exec /path/to/windowmanager

Run one of these to configure X:
XFree86 -configure
After configuring X, choose your default window manager (gnome/kde/somethingelse) using xwmconfig.
Once X starts working fine, you can edit the /etc/inittab file to change the default runlevel from 3 to 4 so you'll boot into X immediately instead of booting to a console.
