That's pretty strange that it just started doing that.  Control over this
 +
is in the /etc/ttys file.  The first two data lines should look like this:
 +
 +
 +
# console      "/usr/etc/getty std.9600"      NeXT            on secure
 +
 +
console /usr/lib/NextStep/loginwindow  NeXT            on secure window=/usr/li
 +
b/NextStep/WindowServer onoption="/usr/etc/getty std.9600"
 +
 +
(I seperated them because the second line is long)
 +
 +
It's very important that the first console line be commented out.  I think
 +
uncommenting it will make that other console appear rather than the
 +
loginwindow.
 +
 +
If something is wrong here and the path isn't the loginwindow or is
 +
something has happened to the loginwindow permissions-wise or if it has
 +
gotten corrupted, that could explain why it isn't launching.
 +
 +
You might want to try recopying the loginwindow from your CD if you have
 +
it.  But otherwise, a reinstall may be the easier than tracking down the
 +
real problem, which you may not be able to fix anyway.
