Question CDE login vs. X-windows

Hi, I'm new to the whole X-windows environment.
Need help please..

Believe it or not- I have a licensed "Reflection".
I use the XDMCP host, and I can see 4 servers there.
2 of the servers are aix servers: one is ver 4.3, the other one is ver 5.

When I open a session to the aix4.3 a large login screen appears, and after login the CDE is initiating. I manage to logon successfully -and get the CDE desktop.

On the other machine (AIX ver 5) when I open a session - a poor x-windows login screen appears, and after logging in I get the xclock and an X-terminal.

How do I start the CDE on the AIX ver 5?

I installed and started the dt. (/etc/rc.dt start).

What should I do next?

BTW - It might be a clue: I started the xdm on the Aix 5 and it appeared on the XDMCP host selection but all the other servers say how many users are logged in and the load average, and this one just says : "willing to manage" instead.
Also - I found out that on the other AIX (The ver 4.3) the xdm is not started but I can still start a session.

What's going on????

I restarted the system.

And It works.

the CDE login is a part of the x-windows s/w.

C - common
D -desktop
E - environment

both Sun and Hp-ux have their own versions
