    Default Am I missing something in the how to?

    So for the longest time I've been hearing awesome things about Linux, recently used it a little at school (fedora).

    Anyway, I read the how to install onto USB using Unetbootin. Followed all the steps, rebooted, and it seems to be working. Except I can't get into the GUI. I have the DOS looking cmd prompt instead, Step 6 tells me to login using username root and pass toor. So in the cmd it says root@bt: ~#, I type login [enter] type root [enter] type toor [enter] -> Invalid login. Soooo... am I missing something?

    The "root@bt: ~#" prompt indicates you are already logged in. Just type startx from there to start the GUI.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    Hmmm, ok. Thank you.

    Why do you have to do that though? Fedora and Ubuntu don't require you to type startx, they just hop right into the GUI.
