help! mandrake single network firewall 7.2


hi, am not a linux expert, but have tried various versions of mandrake's 'ordinary' distro, but am currently trying to set up a hardware firewall using their single network firewall. Installs ok etc, but then when rebooted, it goes through the process fine until it asks (in text format) for my id and password, which it accepts but then hangs on the following (from which i haven't a clue what i need to do)...

"[root@firewall /root]#"

i've looked through the online manual unsuccesfully
any ideas/solutions? i can't get beyond this line

would be much appreciated.
cheers
jude

for info, i also tried smoothwall 0.9.8, which during installation asked where i wanted to install it from (either cd or http), but interestingly enough when i specified cd, it kept asking for the cd (which it had already booted from and was still in the drive)... so i couldn't work that one out

...probably log out cuz you don't need to be root at the box itself I guess, and point your browser to the address mentioned at the end of the install. NSF doc sez all administration is done tru a browser...
