Restore Backup used Fedora 9


I am system analist and and in my office I have a Fedora 9 installed in my server. I need to change hardware, but the new machene has the same configuration. I did a backup and I used the command above:

# tar zcfvp tarball.tar.gz --exclude=/proc --exclude=sys --exclude=./

I start server with a custom linux livecd and I created the same partitions that a old server had, install grub with menu.lst of the old server and I restore the datas with command above:

# tar zxfvp tarball.tar.gz -C /
# mkdir /tmp /proc /sys
# chmod 777 /tmp

I reboot the server and grub, gdm and X it is ok, but I can't login. I tried with the some user and I can't with terminal. I type user and password wrong so the message is " Login incorrect" but if I type user and password valid the monitor flashes and I can type user and password again.

Help me!
