    Linux 9.2 GUI Trouble


    I have just installed Mandrake Linux 9.2. The install went smooth but 1 problem, when i login i enter a "First Time Wizard" i assume this is where i select a GUI, Gnome or KDE. There is only a default environment avaliable for selection!? and i cannot work out how to load up KDE or Gnome so i can start using linux.? At the moment all i get is a "default environment" which has very limited options. and a command prompt. What should i Do?

    You are getting this, as you have install only the default option.

    Btw, in Mandrake 9.2 default graphical environment is KDE (I am not sure).
