Can you clarify some stuff please?:
Can any non-root user login at the console using the X login?
Can any non-root user login from a ssh connection?
Can root login using X/gdm at the console?
Can root login using an ssh connection?
Please post the output of df -h
Please post the contents of /etc/fstab (scrub out passwords if there are
samba mounts please)
What user authentication method is used? (local password files, NIS,
LDAP, Windows active directory, no logins only kiosk/userless mode).
Please post the output of uname -a
Please post the contents of /etc/issue
If the user authentication method is not local password file, please
verify the network connection to the remote server is valid. Also verify
that the iptables rules have not been adjusted to block the reply from
the remote server.
Can you post a bit of the /var/log/message file. Ideally, append a
marker (echo "###marker###" >> /var/log/messages), the try a client
login, then post up the messages from the marker to the end, please.
Are there errors appearing in the /var/log/security file?
