what is your run level.
send us output of who -r command.
if this tells u 2 then try executing
init 3

Forgot to ask you a question:

did you do:
/usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -e

in single user mode and bring up to multi-user mode?

Output of:
ps -aef |grep dt

root 102 95 0 14:33:25 0:00 grep dt

That tells me its not running

******************************
I tried the /etc/rc2.d/S99dtlogin start

It starts and displays text saying that it has started the gui desktop but hangs at that point.

After a hour it was still at that point, I tried a stop A it would not do anything I had to turn off the machine and when it rebooted it was still at the command line login.

******************************
I did it when logged in as root, not sure what you mean?

At the ok prompt i typed BOOT so I guess I was in Mulit-User mode.

I reboot with a boot -s and ran the /usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -e
and it said "desktop auto-start enabled"
I typed exit, then it said " init: new run level:3, system ready

I did a init 6, it still came up in a command line login.
