    (as root) ifconfig will probably show you that 127.0.0.1 is already looped back to your own computer.
    Mine says (besides other stuff):
    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
    Now what? You have Linux installed and running. The GUI is working fine, but you are getting tired of changing your desktop themes. You keep seeing this "terminal" thing. Don't worry, they'll show you what to do @
