How to login w/o username and pw?


I'm a total n00b to Linux. I just installed Fedora Core 2 (for i386). I didn't create a username and password during installation. Now I can't login to use the GUI. I did create a root password, but I don't know where to use that.
During installation I installed x-windows and GNOME for desktop, I'm not sure I can even do that, but they were both check by default.
Can anyone tell me how to login without a username and password?
