Having never read this book, I don't understand why it would tell you to use xorgcfg after you have the X11 initial screen working. Using xorgcfg is used to setup X to get the initial screen. What does it says xorgcfg -textmode is going to do for you?

What you need to do is what anomie suggest and setup a Desktop Environment as that is what you referred to as the GUI.
