    try typing drakconfig. That should bring up a windows that will allow you to configure your X sever.

    Go through the install process once more. After all the packages are installed, a window will appear allowing you to select different options to configure like time zone, network and sound. One of them will be for graphical interface. Go through that wizard. Make sure to test it and are happy with it before your accept and continue.

    Don't upgrade, just re-install.

    You shouldn't get program errors during installation. It could be that you have a bad disc.
