    Getting past command Line in Mandrake 9.2


    Hello,

    I installed Mandrake 9.2 Last night. When it boots up i can choose to press "Linux", "linux-nonfb" or "failsafe".

    When I go in through pressing "linux" i come to this command line.

    At the command line it prompts me for a login, I type in "oliver".

    It then prompts me for a password, which I type in correctly and then hit enter.

    I then get "[oliver@localhost oliver]$", I figure its just waiting for commands.

    How do I get into KDE or Gnome, which I got put on my computer during installation?

    Help would be appreciated, thanks

    P.S I have tried doing the same process by pressing "linux-nonfb" and "failsafe" but to no avail.
