Question Debian 6.0 Post install help!

Just installed Debian 6.0 on my old Sony VAIO and after I do my first login, it gives me a message saying:

"The programs included with the Debian GNU/Linux system are free software; the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright.

Debian GNU/Linux comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
beeblebrox@Slartibartfast:~$_ "

How exactly do I get past this? I'm pretty sure GNOME is installed.
Thanks!

This sounds like you had installed only the base system without desktop environment (I don't know if this is what you want).

The first step I would do are:

1.- Install the latest updates and a desktop environment with the desktop manager
2.- With a fancier looking desktop, install the remaining drivers (graphic card, bluetooth, wireless network card...)
3.- Install all sort of software that you want

------------------------------

1.-
Login into root with su, it will ask for your root password

Code:
jackpanzer@rabidalap$ su
Password:
root@rabidalap# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
Here you have the Debian wiki for the desktop environment to choose the one you like it the most or suits for your pc but; knowing that is an old laptop, I would choose LXDE or XFCE

Code:
h**p://wiki.debian.org/DesktopEnvironment?action=show&redirect=CategoryDesktopEnvironment
2.-
Even when you are in a desktop environment, you can open a linux shell to install the remaining drivers

3.-
Some desktop environments have a software center and in the debian package webpage you can perform searches in order to find the applications you want

Yes, after playing with the installer menu, I found it.
My regards.
