Default Fedora Core 4 - "localhost login" issues

First of all, I am a newbie when it come to linux!
i have followed the stept ( exactly as it says on "The Perfect Setup - HOW TO" ), i did specify a root password ( the only one that i could specify ). When Fedora boots, it asks me for a "localhost login" and a "password". the thing is that i don't remember during setup to have set such an account! please help me! what there is to be done here?
THX IN ADVANCE!!!!!

If you login on the Linux console, you will have to enter first the username (root) and then the password.

You can do it with the useradd command. Run
Code:
man useradd
to find out which options you have.
