Subject: install of wordPerfect demo, hung at /dev/X0R: No such file or directory

I'm trying out that new WordPerfect demo, but I'm hung up at
the installation.  I'm using the 1.1.62 kernel and the 
920 iBCS package which seems to work ok (wpdecompress program
works fine).  There are no install directions so I untarred
the wp60stat.tar file to the root, and as root, from /, I
ran wpinstall.  There are signs of files uncompressing and
a little chatter, but I'm stopped at the following:

wpinstall
     WPCorp Installation for:

     WordPerfect 6.0 for UNIX (R) Systems
/dev/X0R: No such file or directory
Error: Can't open display: :0

On the suspicion that /dev/X0R is FIFO, I made such devices with
"mknod /dev/X0R p" and did the same for /dev/spx.  But here I'm
stopped at...

wpinstall
     WPCorp Installation for:

     WordPerfect 6.0 for UNIX (R) Systems
Xlib:  connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib:  0 5
          NbY VbY^bYfbYnbYvbY~bYcYcY
Error: Can't open display: :0

Oh, the X libraries are X11R6, and xhost is set to "+" and
there are no openwindows thingies on my machine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Its not a fifo.  Read the file README that came with the ibcs module
source code to see how to set this up.  If you dont have the source,
ftp to tsx-11.mit.edu:/pub/linux/ALPHA/ibcs2 and get the latest ibcs
source.
