Default Debian 5.10

I have just installed Debian 5.10 follwing faldo's perfect set up. I have logged in but all I get is the DOS interface. How do I go into graphic/windows interface. I am complete newbie in this linux stuff. I have tried out suse and Fedora but this looks different.

Thanks.

I guess you mean Ubuntu 5.10? If you've followed the tutorial, then there's no graphical interface because it describes a server installation, not a desktop installation.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes I followed the perfect setup tutorial and it's a server installation for Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy Badger and Debian 3.1.
How can I now use this through the GUI since I have no experience of using the DOS interface or is it not doable as compared to suse or fedora?

Thanks as always.

Do you want to use your system as a server or also as a desktop system? I mean do you need the desktop to control your server, or to write emails and office documents and so on?

Thanks again for your prompt reply. Ideally I will use the machine as a Server but since I do not have the experience of the linux commands at least until am proficient, I will like to use the GUI /desktop to control/manage the Server.

Thanks.

Yes, and thats why there is ISPConfig isnstalled. You can manage all functions nescessary for webhosting through the webbased ISPCOnfig controlpanel.

Thanks as always,

The tutorial said I should Edit /etc/network/interfaces and others. How should call this from the DOS interface.

Thanks.

You can use the command line editor vi. Have a look here:

I am still lost as to how to modify my network card file to look like this

# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation
# (network, broadcast and gateway are optional)
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.11.100
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.11.0
broadcast 192.168.11.255
gateway 192.168.11.1

auto eth0:0
iface eth0:0 inet static
address 192.168.11.101
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.11.0
broadcast 192.168.11.255
gateway 192.168.11.1


Thanks.

If you're not comfortable working with vi, you can copy the file to your Windows desktop using WinSCP ( http://winscp.net/eng/index.php ) and edit it there. But make sure that you save the file with Unix linebreaks, not Windows linebreaks!
Afterwards you can transfer the file back to your Linux system and restart the network.
