Login problem


Few months ago i downloaded Fedora core 6, cause wanna learn about Linux, so week ago I installed with a windows Vista trying to do a dual boot with no success.
Now i used Virtual PC 2007, install apparently correctly, when boot, ask me for login and password.

How I know the login?
I entered just a password in installation, but no login or user information. At least i dont remember entering one

Theres a workaround? Why theres no GUI(graphical User Interface)?



Sorry if a make grammar mistakes in English, Spanish first language

Chances are you just forgot what you entered. One work-around
would be to use the install CD as a rescue-mode CD, mount the
partition and look at /etc/password to see whether or not a
user-account has been added.

Hmmm ... what graphics adapter does Virtual PC present to system
you try to install?

Thanks Tink

Thanks Tink
I tried with rescue option

so it came out

1. reinstall
2. dev/volgroup00/...

dont know what is the second option, so I reinstalling right now

no option for user name till now, just for password for boot, i leave blank, and password for root (entered a password in this one)

the Virtual Pc have 160 mb of ram and I used 6GB of disk space(those 6GB in a second harddrive)

I'll tell you if a option appear to enter username or login info.


I wonder if some have post how to do a dual boot with vista already install. (Have 2 hard disk, want one for vista the other for linux)





I had made some post in other places, but sometimes no one reply or take more than a week to do it

Thanks Again

Reinstall

I reinstall using text mode (not enough RAM for graphical mode, just 160mb)paying attention to see a place to enter login info or user. None. Just for root.

i could login in command prompt

No way to get a GUI with 160MB of ram?

Should be possible ... just don't know how for Fedora. I'm
moving your thread to the Fedora forum.



Cheers,
Tink
