root should never be allowed to telnet into a machine--this is a security
feature. In fact, you should never use telnet. Use ssh
(http://www.openssh.org).

What's "m/c"?

Your first problem description sounds like a PAM problem. How about some
relevant /var/log/messages output and list of any changes you have done to
the stock files in the /etc/pam.d directory?

P.S. If you take time to write a proper email describing you problems in
good detail (with log files, changes in the past, etc), and with proper
grammar, you changes of someone helping you out will increase.
