Slackware 10.1 setup freezes when selecting root pswd
Hey all, I'm trying to install Slackware 10.1 (firsttime slack) and I've gotten almost all they way through setup. I said YES to set a root password and it left the setup menu and went to the black space under the menu. It said type in a password and hit enter.
It won't respond at all now. I tried typing a password but it is just staring at me with a blinking cursor. No keys I push do anything. The keyboard has been working fine all the way through setup, so any ideas on what the problem is?
thanks for any suggestions. I'll start over if I have to but I don't want to hit this problem again (and I would really like to set the root password).
