XDMCP was disabled

hi guys,

i've got an error msg when starting xwindows on red hat 9:

no servers were defined in the config file & XDMCP was disabled. this can only be a configuration I have started a single server for you. you should log in & fix the configuration. note that automatic & timed logins are disabled now
it happened after I run the "fsck" command

Sounds like a login manager problem. Do you know if you're using gdm or kdm? If it's gdm, trying running gdmconfig to generate a configuration.

(XDMCP is a remote access protocol which you probably don't want: the reason it's complaining about that is that one would either have some local servers configured or be using XDMCP, and you appear to have neither in your configuration)
