Thanks for the quick replies. Joshua your solution did the trick. After 
putting my "wake up" head on rather than the "dozy" head I have been 
using lately, I RAN the command mentioned (rather than going to the 
location - doh! me not reading properly) and it has allowed me to create 
a password atlast!.

Thanks richard - I had been running as root but forgot to mention that 
in my previous post.

Thanks again. Have a good day all.
