First, I installed Suse 10.1.

Second, I installed the Novell Client for Linux build 510.

Now, when I boot the machine and I am prompted with the login screen, I
cannot login with my user account. If I try to authenticate, the
password field turns gray and the machine does nothing. I can then
click Restart. The computer does not restart, but I am presented with
the login screen again.

I can log in as root. Once logged in as root I can use the Novell
Client for Linux without any problems.
