Cant Login to Ubuntu Studio 8.04


Cant login to Ubuntu Studio 8.04 Hardy . I put in my username which it seemingly accepts and then it wont allow me to type in a password and wont go any further unless I reboot and the same thing happens again, have I installed it incorrectly?

Do you login in console or in some sort of graphical interface?
In console the password is not displayed when you type it, for security reasons...

I hope you are aware that the password being typed will not show in the screen - so you are supposed to enter the password and hit Return key. I know its very basic but sometimes newbies miss this.
