postfix & cyrus-imap on redhat Enterprise 4

I tried to config cyrus to work with postfix on my redhat 4 but could not be success . Here the way I did , hoping someone could help me

1. Config postfix
edit the :
myhostname =
mydomain =
myorigin = $mydomain
mydestination = $mydomain, $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
mynetworks_style = class
mailbox_transport = cyrus
fallback_transport = cyrus
[root@cvkhanh ~]# service postfix start
Starting postfix: [ OK ]
2. Edit the imapd.conf
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
configdirectory: /var/lib/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
admins: cyrus root
sievedir: /var/lib/imap/sieve
srvtab: /var/lib/imap/srvtab
allowanonymouslogin: no
allowplaintext: yes
[root@cvkhanh init.d]# service cyrus-imapd start
Starting cyrus-imapd: preparing databases... done. [ OK ]

[root@cvkhanh init.d]# service saslauthd start
Starting saslauthd: [ OK ]
3. Change password for cyrus user
[root@cvkhanh init.d]# saslpasswd2 cyrus
Again (for verification):
4. Login imap to create mailbox :

[root@cvkhanh etc]# cyradm --user cyrus --auth login localhost
IMAP Password:
Login failed: authentication failure at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi/Cyrus/IMAP/ line 118
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with login as cyrus
[root@cvkhanh etc]#
I could not find out the way to solve it , please help me
