Anyone know Backtrack?

Hello, I am relatively new to the Linux scene, and I am stumped. I am trying to load the Backtrack 2 distro, when I get to the prompt, it has on screen instructions with commands and other stuff. It also says to login with the username "root" and password "toor". Here is a link to a vid with the same screen that i am at, I am only to the point where he types in the usrname and pwd. He gets the login, and starts X, but i get an invalid password response.

Has anyone had this problem before? Anyone know how to get logged in and start X? All help is appreceiated!

Credits to the vid goes to .

Passwords are case-sensitive in Unix; I assume you don't have the caps lock on?

Yes, i have made sure that capslock is off. Thanks for the suggestion though. Would you suspect a corrupted download? Maybe if I download and burn again, does anyone think that that would be an effective COA?
