try startx, if you get an error run xorgconfig and follow the instructionsHere's why Linux is easier than Windows:
Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

You'll also need to create a ~/.xinitrc if you are using startx on your user to include "startkde" as the only line for now, you can add more as you get more advanced and want other things to run when you start X, but for now just include that.
