first login failure

I just finished installing RedHat8 on my machine. After rebooting, I tried running my new OS, but could not get past the log-in.

During installation, I did not specify a special username, but did supply an administrator password. Login with "Administrator" or "Admin" and this password fails however.

How do I start my first Linux session? (yep, I'm a complete N3W813 at this stuff!)

Try "root" as username, and the password you wrote
