Cant log in into Red Hat 7.1

I'v installed red hat 7.1 and it's impossible to log in. I follow the rule of lower and upper case and It still refuse to accept the username and password. I had RH 7.1 installed last summer without problems. The installation I made this time is a copy from same CD-discs as I used last summer. I even tryed to install without LAN-card in the computer but no, It don't work.

Pleas help me solve this mysterious "thing".

That's odd what here is what you can do.

To fix all your authentification problems restart the computer and at the lilo prompt type:

linux single

That puts you in as user root and then you can change your root password at will and also any other user.

Hope that helps.
