What is the version of emacs-w3m you've installed? 1.3.80 or
1.3.6? You are using Emacs 21, not XEmacs, aren't you?

If you are using emacs-w3m 1.3.6 and XEmacs 21.5, it won't work
for almost web pages because of the XEmacs bug, simply shows an
empty buffer. Anyhow, I personally recommend you not to use
XEmacs 21.5 since there are a lot of bugs, although emacs-w3m
1.3.80 fixes some of them.
If you aren't using them, did you see any error message? It can
be found in the "*Messages*" buffer. You can also use
`(setq debug-on-errot t)' for clarifying a bug.

We cannot help you only by the information that emacs-w3m
doesn't work. The easiest way to see how do you use emacs-w3m
is to type the `C-c C-b' key (or `M-x report-emacs-w3m-bug') in
the emacs-w3m buffer. It may also be useful to send the
settings for emacs-w3m in your .emacs file.
