I'm new to linux but not computing. Taking intro to linux class and got the chance to build a linux rig out of and old dell dimension 2400. Installing opensuse 12.2 Mantis kernal 3.1.6-2.10 default ttyl. while installing got a text screen asking for username then password which i provided. shortly after that the install crashed and had to close, with a message with the
sorry ran into a problem bla bla bla. the system didn't have much memory so i installed some more and rebooted. now when i get to the text screen asking for username, i enter and it says invalid username...soo I installed ubunto but I really wanted open suse. So i put in my suse disk and rebooted. it started installing and I got back to the username screen again and guess what? invalid username!
I've tried everything I can think of. any ideas?
