Generally, startx is the command that will begin an X session. If you always want to use X Windows, you can edit /etc/inittab so that xdm is the default at boot, and by logging in it automatically starts an X session for you:

#id:3:initdefault:   # Run level 3 is multiuser, command line.
id:4:initdefault:    # Run level 4 is XDM.

Hope that helps,

Jim
