    Enter the command: startx to start a GUI. Usually you boot straight into a GUI environment, so there could have been a problem configuring you graphics card. Post back any error messages you get when you run startx.

    The mirrors are listed here. If you prefer KDE, download the release labeled as 2007 and if you prefer GNOME, download the GNOME cd.

    They should all have that - you just need to enable it through the
    PCLOS control centre. Assuming your graphics card is up to the
    job of course.
