I try to open other origenal *.db file in RH9 by openoffice calc by dbase format, but i can't read the text in the file, maybe the file is not in dbase(*.dbf) format.

did you try "db_load -T -t bash -f ......." in redhat 8 ?

any way, I use vsftpd service in RH9, and type the command by "root".

Which database is your FTP server getting the authentication info from? LDAP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Berkeley? If it's Berkeley, you can do something simple like:
makemap hash login.db < login.txt
