Can't run / Login to Webmin in SUSE 10.0


I have downloaded and installed the latest Webmin RPM using the command line as advised on the webmin website. Everything installed OK but I can't log in to it using the http (://) localhost:10000 command. It returns a message saying
An error occurred while loading http (://) localhost:10000 (/
Could not connect to host localhost (port 10000).

Anybody got any ideas to solve this please?

Thanks in advance

Hope this helps.

You may need to start webmin:
service webmin start

As root

Thanks for the reply but I've tried that and still no joy. I've also checked to see where it installed and what directory all looks OK so I'm struggling now.
