Thanks for the quick response from Matthieu.  I wasn't aware that xdm
has now disable root login.  For detail, please read the response I
got.  Thanks again.

Matthieu's response:
Do you try to log in as root ? xdm has now root logins disabled by
default. Log in as a normal user and use 'su'. 

You can also set the resource 'xlogin.Login.allowRootLogin' to 'true'
in /var/X11/xdm/Xresources to revert to the previous behaviour.
