FWIW, this is NOT an isolated case. I've installed F10 twice on one box now,
and both installs did that to me. Not allowed a root login, but it never
asked for a user to be setup. So I installed again, and again it failed to
ask for a user to be setup. I didn't try a 3rd time on that box, plugging in
a Mint Linux dvd instead, but that release everybody was having orgasms over
wasn't anywhere near ready for prime time.
That box now has ubuntu-8.04 LTS on it, but it may wind up with 6.06 LTS
simply because the newer X has 1 second or more in lags the screen update,
and for emc, that is very much _not_ a tolerable thing.
