Coolness! Its working. I'm going through the demo. I'm still getting a "connect: Connection refused" message but so far it seems to be ok. Hopefully, I can now participate in this list instead of lurking.

I've seen this before :-(
Try switching your Dell to 256 colors before starting up Exceed and it should work. I did half of the job to make Self run on screens with more than 256 colors, but then got stuck in the mask generation code.
Your reference to "connect: Connection refused" made me think the same thing as Reinout Heeck (that you had not run xhost), but since you do get blank windows, the number of colors is likely to be the problem.
We need to fix this...
