Problem with login


Hi all, I'm a new Linux user,
I've got a big problem...
I just installed Linux SuSE 9.1 and did update while installing.
When loading is finished and I got the login screen, I can only fill the login field, the password field won't work.
So I tried the recovery option on CD, but the problem is the same, I can't type anything when it asks the password...
How can I fix this?
Thanks

Don't work as in can't TAB into it, or don't work
as in "no echo", or don't work as in "no matter
what I type and press enter, I get 'wrong password'"?

In case 2 it all may be working well, just type and
press enter ;)


Cheers,
Tink

Okay, I found the solution, and what a solution...
The thing is that I was used to see stars when I typed password... and since not any do appear here...
Problem is ok, I've got a few others but I'll try to resolve em myself.
Thanks again
