Total newbe Linux Mint 12 bt login
I just started with Linux Mint 12 and after booting the computer it loads Back Strap, and I really don't know what Back Strap is, then a black screen asking for "bt login" no matter what I enter here it then asks for a "password". Now I haven't set up any passwords or anything in fact I haven't been able to do anything yet. If I try to enter enything into the Password area it won't accept the typing that I am doing. This is an old computer that I just installed a new hard drive in today so there is nothing on it except what the cd has installed. I have never used Linux before so I am a total newbee at this. Any help you folks can give me will be grealty appreciated. As I said I am new at this so be gentle with me and use layman terms so I can understand. Thanks guys
