Cisco 2500 password recovery

I've done password recovery on switches, but routers seems more complicated.

1. Ok, I boot up router and press CTRL break
2. I type "o"
3. Then I type  "o/r  new_ configuration_ register_ here"

What next?  Is there anyone that can put it in layman terms?

ps:  When I do the CTRL break, my hyperterminal seems to lock. I can't type "o" . I actually cant type anything. Ideas? Wasnt always like this

I would create a new hyper terminal session.
this time leave the flow control at the default setting.
Are you using Windows XP?  You may want to try Hilgraeve's version of HyperTerminal...
Hilgraves owns all versions of Hyper Terminal. It is their product.
