Question CDE running but not display on screen

Runing p550Q via HMC
I'd like to start using graphic interface CDE:

lslpp -l | grep X11.Dt*

X11.Dt.ToolTalk -- AIX CDE ToolTalk Support
X11.Dt.bitmaps -- AIX CDE Bitmaps
X11.Dt.helpmin -- AIX CDE Minimum Help Files
X11.Dt.helprun -- AIX CDE Runtime Help
X11.Dt.lib -- AIX CDE Runtime Libraries
X11.Dt.rte -- AIX Common Desktop Environment

smit system -> change system user interface -> select system login user interface -> CDE 1.0
/usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -e
The CDE is Already set as the default User Interface
/usr/dt/bin/dtlogin -daemon nothing happens
when run: /etc/rc.dt
Starting AIX Windows Desktop.... # and there is no x windows
in inittab there exists an entry: dt:2:wait:/etc/rc.dt
I made cp /usr/dr/config/Xservers /etc/dt/config/Xservers
chmod 755 /etc/dt/config/Xservers

vi /etc/dt/config/Xservers
:0 Local Loacal@console /usr/lpp/X11/defaults/xserverrc -T -bs -force :0

vi /usr/dt/config/sys.dtprofile
# DTSOURCEPROFILE = TRUE
becouse ther is no .dtprofile file for user root in /home - don't know how it should look like. Is this file unnessesary for starting CDE??

I have read taht I need X Virtual Frame Buffer. I install it
OpenGL.OpenGL_X_dev.vfb*
X11.vfb*
added to inittab
Xvfb:2Smilience:/usr/lpp/X11/bin/Xinit /usr/lpp/X11/bin/mwm -- :1 -vfb -force -x abx -x dbe -x GLX &

What should do, to have X on my srceen or on the other machine running WindowsXp via xbrowser-4.2??Smilie
