You can use the command startx to see the graphical interface but you"ll probably want to install one of the display managers to get a graphical login screen on boot. You have the choice of the following :

xdm : the classic X display manager
kdm : the KDE display manager
gdm : the GNOME display manager

Just install one of these with the command

apt-get install kdm (for example)
