Re: log-in



I do believe it was asking you to set up a user account.  While the
installation requires root privileges, which is why it asked for the
root account name and password before the bulk of the install commenced,
it waits until the first boot for the rest of the information to make
your machine properly usable (it is bad practice to log in as root for
any by administrative work).  Routine use of your computer should be as
an ordinary user to reduce the chance of performing a damaging task.
