No nothing was changed as far as I know. I usually log on as a super user through telnet and there are few others that I have also given access to as a super user. I have not tried the console yet, but what am I looking for. Thanks,

Did you change anything?
How are the various users logged in?  Via ssh?  On the console?  xterms?
