a coulple of questions about log-ons!
I just installed RH9(gnome) and i opted for a text login.
during the installation i didn't come across anywhere where i should have entered my user name....all that was asked for was my root password.....now when i get to the text login...i have to use the user name 'root' to log in and my home folder is 'root's home' ...now this is not wat i want .....can anyone plz tell me how to change this so i don't log in as root? (its also not good for security reasons).
also when gnome starts up i get an error something along the lines of....
gnome could not log in tcwer1.dyn.monash.edu.au this could be fixed by putting entering it in /etc/hosts then i have the options "try again" or log in "anyway"....(or something).
I'm on a university network.....so this has probably got something to do
with it....my internet still works.
also when i log in at the text login (as root at the moment!) i get teh following [root@tcwer1 root]# why is it @tcwer1 ?? this is by monash university username ???? i didn't enter it anywhere duing teh installation......can i remove it??? or change it....and how would i do this?
cheers! .....any help/suggestions much appreciated...

useradd -mg users stagnant7 passwd stagnant7
