Normal user can't login via CDE?

I use Solaris 8 on my Blade 2000 machine. There is a trouble puzzled me now. The root user can login CDE, but any normal user can't login CDE. I delete .dt directory, .X* files, but the problem is still here.

How can I do?

After serveral hours hard work, I found the problem finally.
I set the wrong file permission of /usr/dt/config/Xsession, so normal user can't read this file.

additional help please

On my Solaris 8 SunBlade 1000, the root can login CDE, but any normal user cannot login to CDE as well.

I have not tried deleting the .dt directory, or .X* files (what is the full path to those files?)

Can I just rename those folders or skip that step altogether?

Additionally, I could not find a /usr/dt/config/Xsession file, but found some Xsession.ow2 and Xsesion.ow files.

Any suggestions?
