Description cosmos 2000-03-07 14:40:39 EST
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.
