I am a new user (nearly) of Linux.
Tested live discs from several flavours of Linux the last being Fedora 8. This was the only one that worked without any problems.
So I downloaded the install version (all 3G of it) and installed to a separate HDD. No problems at all until I rebooted to start it running. The sign on screen asked for my user name and password!
What username and password??? At no time during install was I asked to enter such info or any clue given as to a defaults, save for a root password.
Thought I has missed something so I did the install all over again with the same result.
So how do I get going?
Please help.
