Unhappy


Could anybody help please! I have DEFINITE LINUX 7.0. After installition, and midway through configuration it asks me to enter a `root` password in both boxes. I get a flashing cursor and can `TAB` back and forth to each box but can not enter anything.(could it be masking my password like windows does with `*`s)

Also when install is complete it asks for `logon name and password` the password I typed in got a replay of incorrect password and logon something or other(I believe also you might actually type in `ROOT` but I have tried this also in logon and password.

The version of Linux was on a cover mount of LINUX FORMAT Issue One. I have followed the guide in said magazine, to no avail. Is there something I am missing? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Also it tells you to register, but I did not receive a code, do you have to purchase it boxed before you get a code. Thanks again.
