You have a root account, which has username "root" and either a password you set during installation (it probably called it "root password" or "system password" or something), or no password at all (just hit enter).
To create a new user, use adduser or useradd. To change the password for your current account, use passwd.
I agree with Frustin on the version of Linux... if you can use something newer than RH 6.0, it's probably a good idea... you'll have all sorts of problems installing new software on an old distro...
