What you need to do is what anomie suggest and setup a Desktop Environment as that is what you referred to as the GUI.
My mistake to use that term "initial", but I already re-phrased it earlier as "test screen" (grey with an X in the middle, where the X can be moved by mouse).
The "initial screen" as I see figured in the book is "...running under the bare-bones TWM window manager".
I never got that far though.

It's probably best I leave this a day and try again tomorrow with /usr/sbin/sysinstall and a fresher head
