>From /etc/initab


It was id:1:initdefault: before ,

Now i get the login prompt , i typed root and the password, that doesn't login successfully, it prompts me to login again and again, may be some problem setting root password.

I also get this after doing 'chroot "$LFS" /usr/bin/env -i HOME=/root TERM="$TERM" PS1='\u:\w\$ ' PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin /bin/bash --login'

root:/etc/sysconfig# passwd root
Changing password for root
Enter the new password (minimum of 5 characters)
Please use a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers.
Bad password: too short.  
Warning: weak password (enter it again to use it anyway).
passwd: password changed.

Can't set password ^

Also from i can type from a to z during login prompt but i can't type ;',./ these punctuations, i get unreadable(not human readable characters) for those punctuations

What should i do?

You are getting through rcS.d ok, but somehow running sulogin when you shouldn't be.  What are the contents of /etc/inittab?

What do you have in the file /etc/sysconfig/console?
I suggest just removing the file for now.
