On my Jaunty 9.04 server box I follow the description on

I use a that contains:
echo "Your appliance is about to be finished to be set up."
echo "In order to do it, we'll need to ask you a few questions,"
echo "starting by changing your user password."


The result is strange.

When I have logged in, it asks me for password, with the prompt
[sudo] password for jarl:

I enter the password "default", and nothing happens.
Why is it asking me for sudo password?
Why is it not echoing the three lines?
Why does it not execute passwd?

Any hints?
