OK, I found the answer.  WiondowMaker must be installed, even if you don't 
plan to use it (yeagh!).

Program makes and installs OK, but when I mark it as the window manager for 
run level 5 (or equivalent) it brings up a nice window, lets me specify the 
Session I want, prompts me for user, prompts me for paqssword, then promptly 
fails to login my user (root as well), and presents me with the nice window 

Can anyone comment on what is missing?

At present, this is a pretty boat anchor!
