Updating to Ubuntu 10.0.4

I just tried updating (upgrading?) to Ubuntu 10.0.4 (or something of the like)from Ubuntu 9.0.*, running on Gnome 2.22.3. Now when I start my computer, after login/password, all I get is terminal in front of me. What do I type?
Also, the screen seems very wobbly & fuzzy.

I should note, that when I was upgrading, package manager asked me what settings I wanted for the .smb (?)configuration. I picked the wrong one (use old settings), and it gave me an error/warning about not being able to update some things properly.

Help, Please!

It's working now.
I didn't notice the browser options on the login box.
(I'm running on Gnome).
