Why wont RH9 let me enter root password during install ????

I am trying to install RH9. When it comes to "enter the root (administrator) password for the system" it won't let me enter anything, both "Root Password" and "Confirm Password" are greyed out, so is the "Next" button. What's next ?

Thanks in advance,
