Unhappy Why won't RH9 let me enter root password during install ?


I am trying to install RH9. When it comes to "enter the root (administrator) password for the system" it won't let me enter anything, both "Root Password" and "Confirm Password" are greyed out, so is the "Next" button. What's next ?

Thanks in advance,
Dave

I have never had any problems with this on my installs of RH, but did you answer or enter all info before this screen? Maybe a bad cd?
