After trying to get an E-mail through to the lists for
three days I was more than happy when I finally
got through today. problem is looks like all the problem
solvers  have gone out for quiz night. We do however
have a considerable amount of historical  philosophers,
Perhaps I should give up computing and take up history;
rather than figuring what`s coming I could see what has been.

I`m having a problem logging in at the console, each time
I do log in the console reverts back to the log in screen.
There`s a message relating to PAM unix not allowing the user
in; session closed for user. Now I know someone else is having
a similar problem as I`ve read so in the lists, Pam apparently is
to do  with recognition. So why am I going round in circles ?
Is there a known problem with the log in as it`s behaving like
a for next loop. The cd set I`m using is woody, wants throwing
on the log pile. I`ve learnt a lot about computers through making
mistakes but know nothing of Linux but this is beyond apprehension.
Does anyone know how I go about sorting this problem.
I`ll be honest after trying to get this program up and running
for over five days, I`ve decided to purchase SUSE, however It would
be nice to know that I could experiment with this and graduate to
it eventually.
