Hi Josh and Barry,
running system-config-authentication solved the problem.

The lines in system-auth looks like this:
account     required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so broken_shadow
account     sufficient    /lib/security/$ISA/pam_succeed_if.so uid < 100 
account     [default=bad success=ok user_unknown=ignore] 
account     required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_permit.so

I have CentOS 4.2 and is working now as expected

Many thanks
