root login impossible !

hello !!!

i try to install lfs exatly like write in the book (5.0) an it seem to work !

But when i restart my computer, it's impossible to login under root. It say:
"/bin/bash no such file or directory" !!!
but /bin/bash exist (and it is not a link)!!!!

So i create a user under chroot and i reboot ...
i CAN login under this new user (it use also /bin/bash) and everything seem to be good BUT this is what it write when i log:


My hostname is well define because prompt say "myhostname login:"

so , i don't understand and i try twice to install lfs with the same result !!!!

PLease, help me !!!!!
thanks !!!!
