    Cannot log in


    right i am a complete noob with linux and want to gain experence with this.

    i attempted to set up so that it would join my home network domain... but it's messed up.

    the first thing i would like to do is be able to login. but at the moment it only gives me the option to join SOORD and my local username and password doesn't seen to be valid, any idea's how to log on locally?

    right i am using Fedora linux.. i can get to the logon screen but when i attempt to log on it says authentication failed... but when i type in say another user account (say one of the ones on the domain) it says invaid user name password. i have not set up the domain properly, but would like to just log in locally so i can set this up properly.

    when i change it to non graphical logon it comes up with SOORD login:

    SOORD being my domain... i really am stuck and am tempted to reinstall

    or you may need to re-do your password
