Greetings:  I hope it is okay to post this here.  I have RedHat 6.1 on
Intel.  I believe I followed the instructions correctly.
Everything seemed to compile without errors but when I try to log in I get
the above error - any advice?  I've poked through the FAQ and man pages with
no luck.

Thanks for any and all replies,
