First if you are using RHEL3, then you are using a very old version as RHEL is now at 5.4.
Also you will need to tell, how you created the users. Have you assigned nologin shell? Have you disabled the users? What procedure have you followed?
And what login command? You do not need any command to login. Once you have got the shell, you can type user name and password and you should get the prompt. On console, you would not be able to see the password characters. Not even the "*". Do it blindly.

And provide more information.
