Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10041
Sulogin does not understand MD5 passwords

I installed a RH6.0 system with MD5 passwords. I recently had a power
outage and fsck dropped me to sulogin during bootup. Sulogin refused to
accept my root password. So, I ripped the hard drive off the server and
took it to another linux box and fsck'd the hdd. When I returned the hdd
to it's case, I could log in using a regular shell.
This has been fixed in the current SysVinit package.
