Logging in problems with Suse 9.1


I recently downloaded Suse 9.1 Personal and installed it. Everything went fine until I tried to log in, I clicked 'jack' (my name) and then typed my 8 letter password, but it said 'login failed'. I tried again, but still didn't work.
I went into failsafe and when asked for password, i tried to type it in, but no letters came up, not even *s. Please Help.

try entering the password is capital letters (you may have had the caps lock on when you entered the password)

Was the password really for the user jack. When you installed you would have entered a password for the administrator account (called the root account)

Try logging in as the admin account (root) and use the password there.

Incedently SUSE is great, I just tried it the other day
