Unhappy How Do I bypass an application login screen and get root access to install fresh...

I have a computer with redhat installed that once it boots up it comes to an application login screen. I want to bypass that and get root access to reformat hard drive and install latest version of Debian Linux.

How do I do that?

You do not need to log in to Red Hat if your plan is to reformat the drive and install Debian.

Simply download and boot from a Debian install CD following the instructions on this page:
