Login Message "Darkstar" after installing Slackware 10.1
How would I log in to it
I found this would It work
I guess you have started slackware for the first time.
At the darkstar login prompt, type root and it will log you in.
At this stage you are at run level 3 (command line mode if you like)
depending on your hardware, the command - startx - may give you a gui, or you may need to run a command line utility such as xfree86setup first. The installation help on slackware's home site will give you more guidance - good luck!
Your probably on the reboot after installing:
type your root password
(if you want a graphical session)
In future if you want to login as a non-root user then use
from a shell
Also - if you eventually want a graphical login and a graphical session - change the 3 to a 4 in this line in your /etc/inittab file
Slackware uses run level 4 for an X mode.

8.1.1 Logging In
So you've booted, and you're looking at something that looks like this:
Welcome to Linux 2.4.18

Hmm.. nobody said anything about a login. And what's a darkstar? Don't worry; you probably didn't accidentally fire up a hyperspace comm-link to the Empire's artificial moon. (I'm afraid the hyperspace comm-link protocol isn't currently supported by the Linux kernel. Maybe the 2.8 kernel branch will at last provide this oft looked-for support.) No, darkstar is just the name of one of our computers, and its name gets stamped on as the default. If you specified a name for your computer during setup, you should see it instead of darkstar.
As for the login... If this is your first time, you'll want to log in as root. You'll be prompted for a password; if you set one during the setup process, that's what it's looking for. If not, just hit enter. That's it-- you're in!

That pretty much answers your question.
Are they talking about the hostname for the network and are they talking about the root password from installingFEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real
New users read The FAQ
So if I put a name in it it is going to be there everytime I startup and If so could I change it

I've always wondered about that darkstar thing myself. Pretty good explanation right in these forums.
