>From the lunar web page, left side of the screen, under "Documentation",
then "Post Install"

read the note:

  It should also be noted that you MUST "lin xfree86", BEFORE you try to "lin"
  any other module that requires X-Windows. For some reason this is not obvious
  to quite a few Lunar users.

This same man page is also included as part of the ISO install.

See "man lfirsttime".
