You installed but it is not configured.
You better install (or check if you hace them installed)
So you can configure X.
But, maybe, it is a lesser PITA to drop the CD in the tray, reboot,
select "upgrade" option (when the first welcome screen appears, press
F1 so you can know what need to be done inorder to upgrade your
system.) Then, select KDE desktop (or GNOME or both or another one)
installation and all the graphical software that you need.
Because most of the stuff is already installed, it should go fairly
If you have questions, please ask.
