problems booting in (mandrake)
im having trouble booting up mandrake 9.2 i have installed it correctly (i think) I EVEN USED A HANDBOOOK! but it wont work, it give me options of (i use a bootloader) linux-enterprise, linux, linuxnofb (or something), failsafe and windows (yes i need it for school). When i choose any of these options besides windows it will load in, then a screen will come up saying local host login (or something along those lines) and ask for my username, so i input it and it then asks for a password but the problem is i choose not to use a password for the host thingy and just for my user account along with this when i try to enter anything into the password area the text wont appear, ive tried everything i can think of and i dont know what to do anymore, PLEASE HELP ME :( oh and one last thing im extremely newb to this and not that computer savvy so it would be appreciated if you could keep it as simple as possible thanks! :)
Re: porblems booting in (mandrake)
How's this for simple: just enter your password. You may see nothing written to the screen, or in some systems you would see an * no matter what character you enter. This is in part to prevent someone from watching over your shoulder as you log on and thereby stealing your password.
