Can only run X as root

Well, I managed to get X to run, but only as root.  I've read manpages
and howto's until my eyes have crossed.

When I try xdm as a user I get the message only root wants to run xdm. 
If I try startx I get a message unable to open consol.

I've checked X, xdm, and startx all three are -rwxr-xr-x.  I know I've
overlooked something small.  After the bazzillionth time trying this I'm
half way there.
