Password authentication fails

I'm using:

Linux 2.2 (RedHat 6.1)
OpenSSH 3.5p1
OpenSSL 0.9.6
Secure Shell 3.2.0 (on Win98)

I can log into the account through telnet (port 23), but when I try to use
password authentication with Secure Shell, no go. Public key
authentication works fine, but I have a user that needs to get in via
password auth. My sshd_config allows password auth. Any ideas?
