FC6 boots but won't let me log in
Had multiple cases where the installation process just reset the monitor and stopped. Was finally able to install everything, it goes to a command line boot prompt. I try to log in as root but it says 'login incorrect'.
What did I do wrong?
Ok - I found some stuff here about changing my password so I'll try that. But does anyone know why this would be so?
I'm a newbie (to Linux and forums as a whole) so bear with me.

You can change root's password by booting into runlevel 1. Add "init 1" line to your boot entry in GRUB. Then, change the password by issuing "passwd root" command. This usually helps. The only problem that can arise here is whether your GRUB loader password-protected or not ))))
