Unhappy reply

No it never asked me during the install to set a user/password up, and I am using the gnome desktop.

If username and password are not set during the install phase, you are usually asked to supply one upon reboot. As this is a fresh install, I would say start again (you have no data to lose) and pay close attention to the install.

Is there a network cable connected to the pc with live internet connection?
I think you must try to remove or unplug network connection.
Maybe your system is updating or searching some update repositories, i have encountered a problem like that when i first install mandriva in my computer.
