You want to log in as root. That's the password you set up.

After you log in as root, you'll want to create a normal user.

useradd someusername
this will create the user account 'someusername'; of course
'someusername' should be a username you pick out.

passwd someusername
This is the command to change the password of 'someusername' the
'someusername' being the user you created from the first command.

The passwd steps are really self explanatory, if you need help just
yell.
