Post root and users unable to login in command mode- RHEL 4

Error message in /var/log/messages

login(pam_unix)[26769]:session opened for user root by LOGIN(uid=0)
login[26769]: Module is unknown
init: open(/dev/pts/0): No such file or directory

I have created a new user also but i couldn't login to the system.

But i could login to the system as root and also with same new username password through putty from another machine.

Pls help us to solve the problem
