Small problem with Autoyast

Dear forum members,

At this moment i got a PXE install system working with OpenSuse 11.1.
The only thing i can’t get to work in the control file is the root password.

As far as i can find back in the documentation and in a dump of the installed system i need the following:

<users config:type=“list”>
<user>
<encrypted config:type=“boolean”>false</encrypted>
<username>root</username>
<user_password>{password}</user_password>
<fullname>root</fullname>
</user>
</users>

But the password isn’t beeing set.
Does anyone know what i’m doing wrong?
