Have installed debian 3.1 from the DVD ,i asked for a desktop install
but i can only get a console setup.I have reinstalled it three times but still the same
I ask for a desk top when requested .
Can anyone point me in the RIGHT direction.

Says "command not found"
The install went a dream.Its on a triple boot with xp and Kanotix
it discovered every thing except the desk top
must be a missing file??

Installed X window system

All is ok and working
Really need a BLOW by BLOW installation method for Brain dead oldies like
