A couple things for you:

1) Ctrl-Alt-Backspace is not really the _correct_ way to shutdown the xwindows 
system.  If you get a black, checkered screen with about three green windows, 
select the one on the left and type 'exit.'  If this doesn't work, do the 
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and kill all processes that mention X or xfree.  

2) To get Gnome to start create a file in your user's home directory 
( ~/<user> ) called .xinitrc (WITH the 'dot' in front).  In this file, add the 

exec gnome-session

If you use KDE instead, use the line:

exec startkde

Hope this helps, and welcome to the club.
