I've installed Ubuntu 12.04, but when I login it says
bryan@ubuntu:~$ and waits for me to type something. Is it supposed to be the password or is there a command I'm supposed to enter?
Since you see
Ubuntu Server is meant to be used from the command line (mainly for server administration). If you want to have a graphical environment (windows, icons, buttons, mouse pointer and such), you should install Ubuntu Desktop instead of Ubuntu Server.
