rhel server 6.0 x86_64 || password ||
 
the install is quashed because it asks for a PASSWORD- what is the password!!!

How should we know, we have not installed the server. The first thing would be to ask the person that actually did the install.

while it is named "server," there is the option to install as desktop, which is what i -- the installer -- did. but at some point in the install (i forgot where .. reboot?), it asked for the password; when every conceivable password was rejected, the install had to be stopped.

i assumed that there was some conventional, default password that i am supposed to know somehow. i have seen this gremlin before -- GParted, for example, requires that you somehow know the "username" is user and the "password" is live

When you have problems installing RHEL the first way to go would be to ask Red Hat, since you are paying them for support. They will help you with the set up.

the install asks you to set the root password
this you do TWICE .
he second time is to confirm that it is CORRECT and you did NOT make a typo
typos are VERY common and very easy to make

the password you are referring to is the one YOU set in the very early stage on the install

Also RHEL is not free
you MUST pay for a support contract
I recommend the standard 1 year $ 249 /year USD ( there is a $ 49/year )

or

not use RHEL

There are free rebuilds
CentOS 6.2
and
Scientific Linux 6.2
