uname -a: Linux marley.zenox.dhs.org 2.2.5-22 #1 Wed Jun 2 09:17:03 EDT 1999 i686 unknown

Running RedHat 6.0. Apache installed from tarball and linked with PHP3.0.12
I am using the following .htaccess file:
AuthUserFile /etc/shadow
AuthGroupFile /usr/local/apache/staff
AuthName "Zenox Staff Only"
AuthType Basic

require valid-user

The browser, be it NN or MSIE, always asks the user to input his password twice.
You are not in my password file, but recreation of the problem on your system should be easy?
Apache is linked with PHP (which is linked with MySQL and gd1.5)
I have not found one yet.
