Did you install 'gdm'?   (Or 'kdm' or 'xdm'?)

What does

  ls -l /etc/rc?.d/S??[gkx]dm

say?  This command will list symbolic links to (what should be) the display
manager init script.  I get:

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root root 13 Jan 13 22:13 /etc/rc5.d/S99kdm -> ../init.d/kdm*

(I have configured my system so that X (kdm) is the started only in
runlevel 5.  This is not the Debian default.)
