    Logging on to Suse 9.2


    Sorry that this is such a newbie question. I just installed Suse 9.2 on my computer. When first installing it asked me to create a root password and I have that and its written down safely. It also asked me at one point to create a user id and password. Being the only who uses the computer and not wanting to hassle over another login screen I left it blank. Now when I login into Suse it asks me for a user id and password. What do I do? Thanks.

    since you didn't create a user, just enter the name "root"
    then, once logged in, you should create a User to login as, and only use root for system administration.
    you can either do this from the command line (useradd) or through YaST.
