Red Hat 5.2 Samba login issues


I am fairly new to Red Hat. I installed it yesterday but i cannot login as root in the webadmin login page. I entered my root username and password and it just seem to sit there forever and after a while it displays a blank page.
I verified that all the necessary services have started. I have been troubleshooting this since yesterday with no luck.
I would greatly appreciate any help

Thanks,
Lake

Port 901 is the port used by SWAT; Samba Web Admin tool. Are you sure you've installed SWAT; it's not part of the std Samba install afaik...
