    Ok, I installed net-install and did those commands and it looks like it installed ok... but nothing happens. I tried a reboot and still nothing... it just loads a whole lot of text then stops at a command prompt (after asking me to enter root login details) How do I start the fluxbox?

    From the Fluxbox Wiki

    Code:
     echo "exec startfluxbox" > ~/.xinitrc
    Start fluxbox from the command line - Fluxbox-wiki

    You can use the startx command from the command line to start the xserver once you've created the .xinitrc file.

    Make sure this line is in inittab

    Code:
    # The default runlevel is defined here
    id:5:initdefault:
    That should start you in a gui mode instead of command line mode
