Greetingz!

Well, for starters I'm going to have to assume you're running Solaris 10. You mentioned the svcadm command, however you also mention that you're looking for an S99dtlogin file (which would be an older Solaris release).

First things first, do you even see a dtlogin process?
Code:
local@sparc(SunOS)$ ps -ef | grep dtlogin | grep -v gre
    root   715     1   0   Oct 17 ?           0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin -daemon
Second, do you have the following service at all?
Code:
local@sparc(SunOS)$ svcs -xv svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default
svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default (CDE login)
 State: online since Sun Oct 17 05:59:10 2010
   See: man -M /usr/dt/share/man -s 1 dtlogin
   See: /var/svc/log/application-graphical-login-cde-login:default.log
Impact: None.
local@sparc(SunOS)$
If you don't have this service at all, then you might not have a "full" install of Solaris.
Bear in mind, this is for Solaris 10 (a recent release, too. In the first few releases, not every service was converted from an init.d script to an "SMF Manifest")

If you're not on Solaris 10, then you're definetly not going to have that service;
Code:
local@sparc(SunOS)$ cat /etc/release
                      Solaris 10 10/09 s10s_u8wos_08a SPARC
           Copyright 2009 Sun Microsystems, Inc.  All Rights Reserved.
                        Use is subject to license terms.
                           Assembled 16 September 2009
local@sparc(SunOS)$
On older Solaris systems, do the following to check for an init.d script;
Code:
find /etc/init.d -xdev -name "*dtlogin*" -type f 2>/dev/null
By the way, the best way to add a user in Solaris is to first check the defaults of the useradd command, then do this;
Code:
useradd -u 999 -m -d /export/home/luser luser -c "Local User" && passwd luser
Since you might be running this on an x86 server, rather than a SPARC-based server, you might want to try kdmconfig to configure the X-Windows server.
Note that it will let you "test" the display, so you should be able to find one that works.
