I am running Red Hat 7.2 (Enigma) Kernal 2.4.7-10 on an i686 Dell Poweredge. Everything was working fine, I could boot up to command prompt and log in there, telnet was fine. Now I am having problems. When I boot up to a command prompt, if i type a username and press enter it just asks again and again. If I telnet in, I get the banner but no login prompt. I changed my init file to boot into xwindows and I am fine there - but what on earth has happened?? I am very new at Linux. Thanks for your time!
