When you log in, the password you enter doesn't echo to the screen, even as asterisks, for reasons of security. Just type the password and press <enter> and if you've typed it correctly, all will be well. If you're logging in as root, of course, you have to give root's password, not that of a regular user. Welcome to ask.fedora, and I hope we're able to get your Fedora system up and running.</enter>
