Using tramp

I'm using GNU Emacs (powerpc-apple-darwin6.2), having been warned away from XEmacs on OS X, and I'm confused about why I'm not getting the opportunity to enter a password when attempting to access remote filesystems.

My tramp/nil buffer says:

address@hidden's password:
Process *tramp/nil address@hidden killed

and my Messages buffer says this:

Loading tramp...
Loading regexp-opt...done
Loading tramp...done
tramp: Opening connection for address@hidden using nil...
tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell
tramp: Waiting 60s for prompt from remote shell
tramp-action-password: Out of band method `nil' not applicable for remote shell asking for a password

...having not found anything helpful with Google, I thought I should ask here. It looks to me as though password authentication is no longer supported? I have to admit that my interpreting-emacs-messages-fu is quite limited.

So is there something I need to set up or configure before I can use Tramp? I'm stuck using icky *other* text editors until I can figure this one out.
