CANNOT LOGIN! All passwords say incorrect after install of krb5

Ive just spent the last few days installing LFS, then went to install BLFS. Im using the BLFS-cvs because the stable has packages older than the lfs stable version. Anyway, all was great everything was installin good, then some program said that KRB5 was needed. I never seen this program or heard of it before. Anyway I went to install it; its some kind of network authentication program. After install I started the configure and didnt get past the first phase without it not working. Errors saying config file not formated right or something. Copied right out of book. I figure ill do it later time.
Rebooted my machine to finish the last few installs, xmms, mplayer, few audio libraries, and ill be done. Went to login, didnt get a chance to enter pass, got kerbos config file not formated. Booted into my slackware system removed the config file and booted back into lfs. I can login now but all passwords say incorrect. Rebooted back into slackware. There is no make uninstall for this program, and I cant even update the database for my system to do a manual uninstall of it, if would be possible.

ANY help at all would be greatly appreciated. I do not want to restart from the begging loseing over 20 hours of configureing, tweaking, installing to get it just right becuase of one god damn program.

I can chroot into the system. Heres some errors while tring to do updatedb:

[root@Slackbox /]# updatedb
/usr/bin/find: /proc/1/fd: Permission denied
/usr/bin/find: /proc/2/fd: Permission denied

* Nother thing, Slackbox was the name given to my slackware system. It is in the chroot enviroment. It didnt do this before krb5 was installed. Use the same way to enter the chroot enviroment.

Out of desperation, I deleted anything and everything that had keberos or krb5 as the name. This wasnt that good of a Idea, apperently when this program installs it replaces alot of things and moves alot of things.
Mainly the login, passwd, shadow passwd stuff.. I can no longer enter chroot, or login normally at all.
One bit of good news. I saved all the sources and the tools directory. bziped em up for a friend that wanted to install lfs.
