When the computer stops loading, and you are displayed with a prompt, 
type 'startx' to start the windows part.

but by default, ubuntu 6.10 should start the graphical interface 
automatically, but the setup is quirky and sometimes doesnt configure 
the system correctly (6.06 installer did a much better job at it)
