Dell factory installed systems should come with X preconfigured. You
should only have to type 'startx' or switch your initdefault runlevel to 5
in /etc/inittab.

Use 'lokkit' to change your firewall settings to 'custom' and allow ssh
and web. By default, medium security blocks these, I believe.

  If each of us have one object, and we exchange them,
     then each of us still has one object.
  If each of us have one idea,   and we exchange them,
     then each of us now has two ideas.
