unable to log in to a user account

I created a new user on my Mandrake 10.1 official machine using command line. But somehow I missed some settings. Because although I can see the new user on mandrake display manager, I can't log into it. The machine allows me to type the password but then fails to log into the account. It simply sends me back to the display manager screen after that. I can log onto other users which were created using mcc. Also I can log into that new user from other user accounts using 'su -".
What settings am I missing?
Thnx for any help

One thing that I can think of is, Linux commands are case sensative. You got the caps lock on or something?

If you can su user and get there but not at the Mandrake login.....I'll have to think about that.
