Ok, everyone refers to the Handbook, which is _the_ place to look for
info. But, once you start up your system and login as root, you can get
back to the installation menu running the command
and do any post installation that you forgot, including the installation
of additional packages. This is the newbie way of getting up and running
You want to look for Xorg or XFree86, Xorg is the default. From the
sysinstall you also get to configure X.
Note, in *nix, X provides the basic graphical support, on top of that
you want to choose a windows manager. KDE and Gnome are popular, but
quite heavy (and bloated if you ask me). After configuring X you will
choose which windows manager to install.
