In your debian system, as root, in a console, use the command 'tasksel'.
When the grey menu appears, choose the "X windowing system" option. Accept and let install anything necessary.
1) if u have install already installl xfree86 then run
in console mode #dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86.
2)if u dosnt have xfree86 then use
a) apt-cdrom add
( enter woody or sid whatever u r runnig and add)
b) than use apt-get install xserver-xfree86
3) then reboot ur computer ,,
graphich will be show..
otherwise send me mail i will send u some trick more,,
Debian stable is like, rock rock rock überrock solid... But it's also very very old. Most of the releases of the apps in stable are like, 2 years old by now... I personally wouldn't run Debian Stable unless it was a mission-critical server, and by the sound of it that isn't what you're trying to do.
Sarge/Testing got much more decent software, and better drivers, so you really want to switch if you want the latest.
Anyhow, once the system is installed (without graphical!), log in and edit the sources.list file for the Debian repositories with nano by writing "nano /etc/apt/sources.list".
Now you should see some lines in there already... What you want to do is to change the word that reads "woody" to "sarge" or "testing". Do that on all lines, exit and save, then write "apt-get dist-upgrade". This will upgrade your system and might take quite a while.
Once that is done, to install graphical write "apt-get install x-window-system" and go through the configuration process. Hopefully you can take it from there. :)

Oh, right... Forgot. You also need to write "apt-get update" before you can do apt-get dist-upgrade, else it'll still think the old sources are in use. Hope that clears some things. :)
BC lifes hard enough :)
