Description panco 1999-09-13 09:19:45 UTC
when i use the normal user to login and type in the reboot
command, the shell prompt me a "password:", but the problem
is the password is not the root one, it is the normal
user's password. After I key in the user's password, the
system reboot.

Regards,
Panco

This is normal behavior. Look at
'man pam_console' for details.
