Just so you (and anybody else who reads this thread) know, when you do a text mode login (as opposed to logging in using a GUI), you won't see anything happen when you type your password until you hit enter. This is normal and is done so that nobody can gain any information about your password from the screen.

------

Congratulations on getting this far. If you need to post back, it might be useful if you tell us what distro you are using.

Good luck.
