    Is there 3D desktop environmnt after login?


    Just installed Debian & after logging in, what next?
    my cmd prompt says
    userid$$$asdafa ?
    Grub boot loader was installed on my system & it works fine but now I want to uninstall debian, will it mess up my system. Than install something like Redhat or Fedora or something with a desktop environment so it feels cutting edge??
    Any help appreciated?

    Depends how you system is set up at the moment.
    In general you don't need to uninstall. Put the Fedora-installation-CD into the CDrom, make sure it boots from it, and during installation point it to the partition where Debian is installed at the moment.
    With some kind of dual/multi-OS you might want to run a live-CD and do a bit of partitioning with gparted beforehand (say delete all partitions you don't want no more). No biggie.

    PS: you probably didn't select <desktop-environment> during the installation of Debian. You might try:
    su
    apt-get install xorg fluxbox
    exit
    startx
    and that should give you a graphical user interface. If it doesn't move on to Fedora, if it does install the environment of choice (and either keep the 5MB of fluxbox or remove it).
