I'm also happily using RH CDE with RH50 and think it's a terrific GUI
When I have played around and had the login - copyright - pause - login
endless loop it is always been network related. The last time it was
because I did not have my system's name and IP address included in my
/etc/hosts file. Remember, CDE requires network support to run.
I'd be happy to try to help you further with more info regarding how your
box is set up for networking.
