I'm past that hurdle. It seems you have to have a console connected and
define the display from there.
Its just a license problem now. I've been advised to load a couple more
appliaction and license them.

That sounds suspiciously like what X libraries say when they...well,
can't open the display. ;) In a UNIX-ish OS, here's what happens when
one starts an X app when the DISPLAY environment variable isn't set, and
a display isn't specified on the command line:
g5$ unset DISPLAY
xterm Xt error: Can't open display:
Port Charlotte, FL
