The X-server cannot be started on display :0"The X-server cannot be started on display :0" 

Also -- if you are using a local console, kbd mouse - Something to keep an eye open for -- dtlogin will often crap out while starting if it does not see the mouse keyboard detected while dtlogin is starting. 

The tip off for me was these messages in /var/adm/messages: 
Aug 2 17:11:21 calvin usba: [ID 912658] USB 1.10 device (usb45e,39) operating at low speed (USB 1.x) on USB 1.10 external hub: mouse@2, hid5 at bus address 4

(1) Plug in your mouse and keyboard again, 
(2) Then login to a cmd line shell as root and restart dtlogin: 
# /etc/init.d/dtlogin stop 
# /etc/init.d/dtlogin start 

This did the trick for one of my workstation users.

www.unixbabuforum.inProbably during installation, the system is likely to have selected the type 
of "CORE" (the graphical environment is not necessary). 
You should select "END USER" if you want to use are X-Windows. If the system 
must be equipped with Open Windows or CDE, is much more convenient to choose 
these packages using the "Customize" during installation, rather than later, 
manually using the pkgadd command. 

I do not know what system you have installed? You have chosen a bad 
option. Soon 
as possible to repeat the installation than to look for causes.
