Exclamation first install, first boot on netbsd, change password length

I just installed NetBSD, i come from OpenBSD.
I want to change my password to 123, i use NetBSD only for test.
So, i use su command, i edit /etc/login.conf and put the following :

ath=/usr/bin /bin /usr/sbin /sbin /usr/X11R7/bin\
/usr/X11R6 /bin /usr/pkg/bin /usr/pkg/sbin /usr/local/bin:\

Run cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf
passwd testuser
it give me an error, require a longer password
If someone can help me.
