no login prompt for linux

That's a tough one. There are several things that control this behavior. For one thing, you should examine your PAM configuration in /etc/pam.d/ and your /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny files. You may also need to check on the status of yourtelnetd service and the login program.

That said, RH 6.0 is *very* old. You should upgrade to a more recent version in order to keep your system secure.
