Can you log in as a normal user?

If so, please open a terminal and enter the following commands:
        su -
        [enter your root password]
        grep root /etc/passwd /etc/group /etc/gshadow
        grep -c root /etc/shadow
        getent passwd root

And add results of the commands to this bug report.

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested, 
please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.

Note that maintenance for Fedora 7 will end 30 days after the GA of Fedora 9.
