cannot set root passwd

I've just completed an jhalfs (latest development version) script of
LFS-SVN20100506. No errors were reported so I moved on to setting the root
password, editing /etc files, etc.
I entered to the chroot using the command in section 6.4, but when I try and
set the root password I get this:
root:/# passwd root
Changing password for root
Enter the new password (minimum of 5 characters)
Please use a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers.
Bad password: too short.
Warning: weak password (enter it again to use it anyway).
passwd: password changed.
The problem is I am not being prompted to enter a password. The command runs
and terminates immediately with the above output. The password appears to be
set (to what I do not know):
root:/# passwd -S root
root P 05/18/2010 0 99999 7 -1
root:/# cat /etc/passwd
Can anybody guide me in the right direction on how to correct this so I can
set a root password?
