Question quick help needed starting up, please

I just installed Mandrake 10.0, but when I start up my computer, after selecting which "mode" to run it in (Linux, Windows, etc) I only get text when I select Linux...

I can log on as myself, but I can't figure out how to start using the graphical interface (ie the desktops that look similar to Windows, rather than Dos).

How about typing "startx" without the quotes.
