Newbie question: login not working



I just installed RH8.0 and have one problem with it, which is due to pam, I
think.
In a terminal window, I can not do a "login <myself>" or "login root".
What's wrong?

Here some information on what's happening and my current configuration:

[dd001@wisconsin dd001]$ login dd001
Password:

Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info.
--------------------------------------------------------------
[dd001@wisconsin dd001]$ login root
Password:

Login incorrect
