machine is VMWare

I downloaded the 64 bit desk top version of Ubuntu.

I created a VM called Ubuntu, and installed via the iso image I downloaded.
(All of this was done graphically.) I set aside 2G RAM, and 50G HDD 
space for the VM.

Now when I try to run the VM, the following happens. ...

I can login with my name and password and get $ prompt of Ubuntu, but I 
really would prefer to use the graphical environment to start.

What is happening and how can it be corrected?
