I am not sure if this is what happened, but I think when you installed RH9 there was a time limit on the use of that account. That happened to me awhile ago and I just now remembered.
In a terminal window type: man chage
Yow will want to set the -E switch to a later date. The E- switch sets the date on which the user account will expire. Also check the other switches, because it might make you change your password after so much time. To see your settings, type:
chage -l (username) without the () and that is an ell not a one
Hope this helps.
