login user problem in suse 9.0

When i try to add a new user to login in suse 9.0 the system says the password is too long to be used with the encription option. i tried all three of them and finally says it has to troncate the characters...
errr....what what??
all i see is that when i try to login with username different from root user it doesnt do the login....

do you remember what kind of login or password configuration you set your system to use?
