Hello,

i'm trying to use ubuntu 7.10. I have installed the software in my pc and now i'm trying to set up an adsl connection. On the help menu it says that i have to write a command (sudo pppoeconf)when i did that i had to write my password. I tried to do that but i can't because what i'm typing on keyoboard it doesn't appear on screen. I can't write numbers after the password prompt. I'm using greek language. My modem is PSTN PHILIPS CGA3600N. It has usb and Ethernet port.

Greek support is available at
http://www.ubuntu-gr.org/

When you are asked for your password in the Terminal window, you type it and nothing shows on the screen. It is a bit weird because you do not know how many characters you have pressed. However, this is the way it is done, and it comes from over 40 years ago.

yeah you can't see the password while you're typing it. It tends to freak people out that don't know what's goin on lol.
