Did you create a user account? If not, the password you made belongs to the "root" account. If you failed to create the password properly, then the root account might still have a blank password (i.e., just hit return). See the FreeBSD Handbook description of "The Superuser Account" <http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/users-superuser.html> and "Modifying Accounts" <http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/users-modifying.html> _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
