OK so I made one called "beng" and it shows up as a selection onthe signin screen. I tried to go into it but it needs a password. Mine doesn't work. Should I start over from scratch? Or please refer me to proper instruction. Thanks

You should log in as your account and issue this command at a terminal:


sudo passwd beng

This will allow you to type in a new password for that account. Then you can login as that account with the new password.
