won't recognize password

Asked by Sarah Hicks on 2010-08-30

Binary package hint: nautilus

I'm trying to run chimera checker. command: 'sudo cp bin/blastall /usr/bin/'
asks for password, and won't recognize it. I'm not familiar with this kind of computer work, so any explanation has to be dumbed down for me.
