When I want to start xdm

I use Cygwin/XFree86 on Windows 2000. (256 Mb RAM, Intel Celeron)
I hope someone could help me with this problem I have.
I want to start 'xdm'

	Jonas Bolldén@ARCHANGEL
	$ xdm
	Only root wants to run xdm

is the response, so I try

	Jonas Bolldén@ARCHANGEL
	$ login root

I have never defined any password for 'root' so I can't login.

I have tried:

	$ login administrator
	Password: **********

	Administrator@ARCHANGEL /
	$ xdm
	Only root wants to run xdm

So, is there at default password for 'root', or is there another way to do

With regards
