The interactive password length check is a nice touch, but shouldn't no password at all cause a message more like' Enter a root password'?

Comment 1 Jay Turner 2000-02-04 15:50:59 UTC
The screen already says that you are to enter a root password.  Technically,
with nothing typed into the password boxes, the root password is too short,
especially considering that no password is a valid thing for user accounts.
