When I try to SU to root, I get a message Incorrect Login when I try to SU
to root.  I re-installed the PAM files from the Redhat 6.0 cd using
GNOMERPM.  I also made sure that there wasn't anything in the deny/allow
files that would disable this login.  If there is a fix for this, can you
please let me know.  Thanks!

What are the permissions on /bin/su?  They should be "-rwsr-xr-x" or
similar.  What are the contents of /etc/pam.d/su?
