spring logout

is cap-lock on ?
the bios can set it
you might be typing in
ROOT
then the password

? so this is NOT a desktop install but the server install with no gui

if the server and you are not going to pay the $349 or $1,299 you will be better off with installing
CentOS 6

If you don't remember the user names/passwords you entered when you built the system, there's not much you can do. You can boot from CD/DVD, enter rescue mode, and edit the /etc/shadow file to remove the password, then set it when you get logged in, or you can do a reinstall.

And since you're using RHEL, you really should be PAYING FOR IT. If you do NOT pay for it, you won't get support/patches/updates/bugfixes, and won't be able to access the online repositories. As JohnVV said, load CentOS if you NEED RHEL or it's equivalent, or pay for RHEL.
