This probably is not what you want to hear but since running GNU/Linux is all about performance, protecting assets and providing services in a continuous, stable and secure way I must emphasise Red Hat Linux maintenance and errata support ended on April 30 of 2004 for all YES ALL Red Hat Linux releases (not RHEL), meaning the version you installed is obsolete, no longer maintained and unsupported. This means you miss out on all the new technology that's been around for ages, all the bug fixes and all the security updates. Unless you have the knowledge and time to maintain this setup yourself to keep it from (doing) harm, keeping your machine attached to the Internet makes it a hazard not only for you but for the whole community.
So please plan your migration and make it soon. If you like the effort Red Hat puts into certification, ISV acceptance, support longevity and stability of RHEL but don't want to pay for RHEL then you could run CentOS (current is 5.1). If you like what RHL provided then you could run Fedora (unstable is 9 right now). Else check out the many "choose a distro" threads or the "megathread" at LQ.

Did it exhibit this behaviour right after O.S. install or later on? What happened before this behaviour started (PAM stack or other reconfiguration, software installation, removal or update)? Are there any warnings or clues in logfiles in /var/log? What shows if you verify related packages like "rpm -qV pam util-linux"?
