can't get xdm to load.



Okay I have installed slink for the second time. This time around after
I "dselected" and configured my debian files I immediately downloaded
and installed a 2.2.x kernel. Then I downloaded and installed Xfree86
version 3.3.3.  Only then did I configure the X window system with
XF86Setup. When I rebooted the system I was hoping that xdm would load.,
but during the bootup process the last two lines that are displayed are
:

Checking for valid XFree86 server configuration ........ file not found.

xdm failed to load.

What gives?  The first time I was able to get slink up and running  ,
the XFree86 original version  and xdm loaded just fine. But this time,
for some reason loading the newer version has messed up my xdm.  I can
get an X session up and running with no problems, but I really don't
want to type "startx" every time I log in. Any  possible solutions?
