No login screen to enter the WM

I just finnished tweaking my xorg.conf file to accommodate 5 monitors out of 6. I plan on adding the 6th monitor but have run into the problem with the login screen. I have all the monitors set up with the right modes and bit depth and have added the Xinerama option. It all works fine as for screen resolution and the order I want them in. The only problem right now is with the login screen not showing up.

You need to give a lot more info when you ask a question...

Does anything show up or is it a black screen? Is it a grey screen with the X cursor in the middle? Does X error out and crash back to the CLI?

I just have to ask this. What do you need 6 monitors for? Don't get me wrong, if I had 6 monitors, I'd set them up atleast once just to say I did it. But what do you do that requires 6 monitors?
