as dj already wrote, you might have to specify the udp-port in your inittab.

i myself don't start xdm thus i can't help you any further on this issue.

if your system requires MTRR, try to apply the patch you already found
(or just add the line manually after extracting). as you can see in dj's
answer, he has the same error and i have this error too, but i don't
care about it as the system runs as expected (at least so far...)
