    Try the command:

    xorgcfg

    It will configure X

    Then do:

    startx

    Alinux install

    If you really have some compelling reason to install Alinux (i can't
    imagine what that would be), i can help you since i have been down
    this road. For some strange reason , i too could not install version
    12.5 BUT was able to install version 12.3 fairly easily.
    Go figure!!

    Question

    whatever password you use on the first boot becomes your root password.
    type root as the user and type in the password you used on your first boot.
