That sounds normal, just type in the account you want to login as like root or any user you have created and then the password.

If you have Lilo installed as the loader for Linux, at the lilo prompt, type Linux 1
This should put you in single user mode without a login prompt. From there you can check your /etc/passwd file or try to change your root passwd and then test from there by rebooting and seeing if it takes your changes for root or any other user.
