There's a couple common reasons for this:
- installing the wrong version for your OS - there are S8 & S9 versions
of the GNOME download, and if you install the wrong one, xscreensaver
won't be installed - if it's installed properly you should have a
/usr/openwin/bin/xscreensaver file and the Applications menu item
Preferences -> Screensaver will bring up a configuration window.
- running as root. Don't do this. Create a normal user account and
login to it. If you absolutely, positively must run as root, install
the xscreensaver patch for S9 or wait for the equivalent S8 patch to
be released (it's not out yet, but is in progress).
