Question Problem with bootable linux distro

Okay, I have a linux bootable CD called "Cool Linux CD", and it's based on RedHat 6. I can get it to boot up fine and dandy, but when I start, I get the console and no GUI. I tried typing "xstart" but it didn't do anything. Any sugestions?

I have never heard of this distro. Where exactly did you get it?

Here's the freshmeat.net writeup of it:

The window manager is IceWM if that helps.

Are you sure you don't want to be typing "startx" as opposed to "xstart"?

Okay, I got it working now, except there's no internet. Does anyone know how to manually configure a USB DSL modem in Linux? It's SBC Yahoo! DSL. Thanks
