I am not sure if i understood your question.
i assume you typed: root <enter> toor <enter> startx <enter> to login succesfully.
after x fired up, click the fifths icon from the lower left (black terminal symbol).
now we got our terminal session.
by clicking the symbol left to "Shell" you get additional shell "windows"/sessions.
hope that helps. if not try to describe your problem more understandable.
