Guys

I have managed to to do what you say and now when I type in startx, it
does show me a box saying "This session is running as a privileged
user" and asking me to either COntinue or Quit. My mouse isnt working
at this stage and I cant press either of the buttons. Neither is tab
or space or alt c working. What to do?

Your help is much appreciated

I am running as root because this machine is not used for any other
purpose, behind a firewall, not connected to any other machine and is
only being used for testing little utilities.
