You might need to set up a PAM authentication file for CVSNT.  It 
understands PAM, and the default PAM config changed in the RH9 
timeframe--but you might have a locked down default PAM config.  There's 
a sample on the InstallationLinux page in the wiki.


Not sure that's what is happening, but might help.
