Exclamation Ubuntu hanging on login after editing pam.d

Hi guys,

In the process of trying to make Ubunti authenticate with AD2008, I followed some instructions and edited files as follows:

# /etc/pam.d/common-account
account sufficient
account required

# /etc/pam.d/common-auth
auth sufficient
auth required use_first_pass nullok_secure

# /etc/pam.d/common-session
session required skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0066
session sufficient
session required

After doing this I can no longer log in, it just hangs on the brown screen after logging in... it also asks me for my password twice before authenticating?

Any ideas??

Just guessing try the sufficient types at the end of the stack.
Check your syslog?
