I checked out the pam site and I believe that the problem is with the file /mnt/var/run/utmp (which i tried touch, cp dd to copy the file to the rootfs).  Anyway, I have downloaded the source cd's for debian, and I was thinking of recompiling the login binary without pam.  Where would I find the source for login (can't find it on the cd's) and is it possible to recompile without pam?

Sounds to me like you did not copy the /lib/security/ modules. You
atleast need to copy pam_unix.so, and make sure you copied
/etc/pam.d/login (and removed all lines that do not pertain to

Or, you can just download the shadow source and recompile without PAM
