How do you mean? Are you using special characters if so try not using those... just make it a simple password. Also, some console logins don't echo or even show #### or **** ... so perhaps you are entering and not realizing.. so just type it in an hit enter?

I can't imagine a root password not working at all unless the system was somehow broken.. my AT&T Unix PC has a root login for instance and that works just fine.

Note also that the default erase and kill characters on SVR4 (# and @, respectively if I remember correctly) might not be the defaults you are used to on more recent systems. If your password contains either of those characters you'll need to backslash escape them when entering your password when you log in.
