[RndTbl] newbie trouble with FC4

After the 4th install of FC 4, I can finally log in - but only as root.

On the login screen, if I enter the incorrect password, lettering on the 
screen changes to indicate an incorrect login, as might be expected.  
Using the correct password, a separate dialog box appears saying 
"Authentication Failed".  The root name and password is the only 
combination that works.

Booting with selinux=0 on the Grub command line does not help.

When installing, I enabled / selected kerberos and LDAP, thinking I 
might want them in the future - I did not configure them.  Do I have to 
reinstall without them?
