if you are using a DNS server do this

ing /etc

in your nsswitch.conf file you will see
hosts: file
make it look like this
hosts:  dns file

also edit your resolv.conf file in etc
to look like this

domain yourdomain.com
nameserver ip.num.be.r
( mine looks like this)
domain wvu.edu

nameserver  10.10.10.10

reboot..  
init 6

and about openwin it should startup with a login screen and when you enter in the passwd you automaticly login to CDE...??? I really dont follow on that question...

Hope this works

after you login try running this command

kdmconfig

this will allow you to setup your video and mouse and stuff
then reboot..  Now it should come up in cde or openwin if that dosent work

after you login run this command

# this will bring up openwin
/usr/openwin/bin/openwin

#this will bring up CDE
/usr/openwin/bin/olwm
