    Messed up installation


    When I first tried to install FC3 I kept getting an error about disk space or something. So I did the everything install of RH9, but didn't make a username and password before I updated to FC3. I have the root password, and am wondering if I could some how log into the terminal and add a username and password to log in with. Is this possible or is there an alternative to this, besides doing a full reinstall again.
