I tested the gdm and kdm as suggested, and here are my resulsts.
#apt-get install gdm
The system comes up with the Gnome login window. I enter in my username
and password. The X workspace display comes up, and a few moments later
the Gnome login window returns. I'm not able to open an Xterm or shell.
#apt-get install kdm
The system comes up with the Kde login window. I enter in my username
and password and I can hold down the mouse button and bring up the Main
Menu. Success! I'm able to open Xterm and type this message.
I have yet to enable kdm for network suport so that I can use it with my
X terminal and test out that functionality.
Thanks for the suggestions!
