Try to login to the terminal with your username and password
Then get to be root
give your pasword, when asked for it.
Then start gdm
and see what happens. If gdm is missing, try
"apt-get install gdm"
you need to enter the commands given without the quotes.
finally, after gdm (or any other different displaymanager like kdm or
xdm) is started you should see a graphical login screen a screen 7,
which you can access via "ALT-F7" from the terminal that you are working
I hope this works
Please report back, what happens, so we are able to investigate further.
