            I am trying to build a CD bootable firewall with SSH support. The sshd on my source systems works great, but when mount my root system on the CD I can not login to system. When I attempt to ssh in I am prompted for a username and password, then I get a flashing cursor and that's it. I show a PID for the session and it is obvious that it is for the user I have logged in with. It is like I am not loading any of the environmental variables or a shell.

            The ISO I created for the cd is identical to the source system other than I mount a RAM disk for /etc, /var, and /root. I think this is a simple issue but unfortunately I have not been able to isolate it. Is there a file I need to write to in one of my read-only directories?

            I am running an LFS system with kernel version 2.4.20, and openssh version 3.6.1.

    Any ideas?
