Hi anth0ny5, I am not sure if you have resolved this yet (if you have, please let me know how), but I am having the same issue on Fedora 12. I resorted to using fingerprint GUI available from http://www.n-view.net/Appliance/fingerprint/
I followed the setup until I was sure that the fingerprint reader was actually working, and then stopped, as I would prefer an integrated solution with gdm rather than a "plugin". I was able to successfully su as root, login through a telnet session and sudo.
I have since reset everything back to original settings, but I am now happy to know that the fingerprint reader is work 100%.
