    Hi, I'm having some trouble setting up a RAID1 on CentOS 5.9.

    I'm using this guide:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-se...ing-system-incl-grub-configuration-centos-5.3

    After installing Grub on the second hard drive (hdc in my case) and rebooting the system I get the login screen but i can't login as root (i added new user but it doesn't work)
    When i'm using mode single, i see passwd, i also changed password but it doesn't work.

    When i reboot many times my system, i can't login as root and other users.
    I can't use LVM.

    Ssh doesn't work. Putty will close right after I try to log in just as if I was logging out.

    My config files:
    /etc/fstab
    Code:
    /dev/md1                /                        ext3    defaults        1 1
    /dev/md4                /var                     ext3    defaults        1 2
    /dev/md2                /home                    ext3    defaults        1 2
    /dev/md0                /boot                    ext3    defaults        1 2
    tmpfs                     /dev/shm               tmpfs   defaults        0 0
    devpts                   /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
    sysfs                     /sys                   sysfs   defaults        0 0
    proc                      /proc                  proc    defaults        0 0
    /dev/md3               swap                      swap    defaults        0 0
    
    /boot/grub/menu.lst
    Code:

    This was my tenth try. Any ideas?
    Please help me, when you can.
    I have no idea where the problem is.
