I didn't enter "login root", I had only entered "root", so that sounds
like my problem.  I don't have my machine connected to any others, but
I'll try screen.  And yes, when  I say "just stops" I mean nothing else
happens and Ctrl-C doesn't help.  It does print ^C to the screen.  I
ended up hitting the reset button.  Maybe after successfully logging in
as root I will be able to adduser?  I'll give it another try.
