Have a problem while auditing a network. 
I will capture telnet-passwords, but tcpdump
and dsniff only show a single empty frame
instead of a password. Has anybody a hint
what happend? Other things are captured

how do you sniff with tcpdump?
if i youse tcpdump -n -s 2048 -i eth0 -w dump.log

Actually, setting the snaplen to 1500 will be sufficient as long as you
are dealing with plain old ethernet, since thats the maximum size of the
ethernet frames.
