Which version of Indy did you download? Indy-6.0-0.8? The installer 
used in that release should have asked you if you wanted to configure X 
and if you wanted to have X start when booting.

First, what type of install did you select during the install? 
[Workstation, Server, Custom, etc...]

If you selected custom, but did not select all the required packages, 
you may not have installed X and/or KDE, Gnome.

Log in as root and try typing (remember, Linux is case sensitive) 
"Xconfigurator" (no quoats) and see what happens. This should start the 
Xconfigurator and ask you questions about your monitor and video 
adaptor and then test the configuration. It might be best to have the 
information on your monitor and video card handy.

Let us know what you find.
