Login error: just log in as root and change the user's password. (Maybe you forgot it. Maybe your capslock key was in a state you didn't expect. etc.)

Selecting the other curses menu option: use Tab to toggle between fields, and use the Space key to select.

Thanks for the help, user and password are correct but still not able to log in, user:
pc1
password: computer1
I made them simple as I had this problem.

about the second question I tried that combination and did not work, any other suggestion will be appreciated.
thanks

I don't quite follow. You mean you logged in as root, changed the pc1 user's password, and then tried logging in again? And it still did not work?

As for question #2, what sort of system / keyboard is this?
