XWINDOWS ?

I have linux slackware kernel 2.0.0.  I tried to  configure
XF86Config to start XWINDOWS. Everything went fine, but whenn I typed startx it just givess me a grey screen with the mouse cursor. It is not asking for login, why is it so ?

because you're still logged in, otherwise you could not have executed startx ;-)

If you just get a gray screen *and no xterm* you window manager didn't start. Check your $HOME/.xinitrc , if missing just create one having only the command   xterm   in it.
