T2: login fails before I can enter a password



I have installed T2 on my hard drive. At the login prompt, I type a
username "root" and the login immediately fails without asking for a
password.

Using a rescue disk, I examined /etc/passwd and it contains:

root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash
foo:x:763:763:root:/root:/bin/bash

and /etc/shadow contains:

root::13870:0:99999:7:::
foo::13870:0:99999:7:::

Why can't I login?

Mark.
