heh, thanks for the advice.

What I mean is, when I select xsession isntead of KDE in the KDE login screen, I jsut get a green background and a mouse. I cant get to a terminal to execute anything.

The basic Xsession uses the twm window manager. It's very spartan. Left-click somewhere on the background to see the menu. You can start an xterm from there.
