Hi,
I have just installed Fedora Core 1 on to a PC to be used as a firewall / router.

All went well, hardware ok, install complete, system reboot.

It's now asking me for a host login and password....

During the install, I don't recall being prompted for a login and password. I have also tried loads of different combinations of the possible login names and passwords I normally use.

HELP...! frown

When it asks for user, type "root." Then use your password when asked. Once you're in as root, you can configure your users and passwords from the menu.

OK > I've checked a few other threads and tried typing "startx" but got bad command.

This could be the crunch > when I installed, I selected "minimum install - ideal for firewall/router" > I guess this means I have no graphical desktop.

The install is only on a 1.7Gb HDD, so not sure if enough space to install the extra...? Can anyone start guiding me through the process of setting up a firewall for my network please, pritty pritty please... wink
