That depends on your systems configuration. Is nsswitch  using files or
compat for passwd and group or something else?

output looks good for a 32 bit system. you're on a 32bit system?

the order doesn't matter. but if you want to log on with a password you

password outside the jail, and if correct it will start jk_chrootsh that
will bring the user process inside the jail)
