after three installations of pcbsd 8.2, each time, root password input was not recognized when any program requested it. is this a disk geometry problem? in that the psswd is stored in an other wise unreachable place? boot notices of bad disk geometry.

Are you trying to login via the console or GUI? Any special i18n characters that can be causing this? Also, does this occur on 9.2 or later? 8.2 is depreciated, and will not be updated. If it still occurs on 9.2 or later, please re-open.
