Hello Everybody,

This is my first post, and I'm sorry to have to make a first impression with such a stupid question, but how do I get a user interface for BackTrack 4?

I just downloaded BT4 (Final Release) and installed it to my USB device with Unetbootin. When I start BT4, I choose the "default" boot method and after it boots up, I'm logged in as root and I'm presented with the command prompt. I can navigate using the command prompt, but as I'm completely new to Linux systems, it would be very handy to have a GUI right now while I'm learning.

I also read somewhere that I should try a 'startx' command. However, it gave me an error message saying that the "Screens cannot be found. Giving up." I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it, but I trust you guys would know.

So as to reformulate my question, how would I bring up a GUI from the shell?

Thanks in advance for your help.
