Logging in as Root

First, login as root (Figure 193 and Figure 194). In general, only login as root when you plan to make changes to your operating system. For other common uses, use a non-root account. This helps prevent you from inadvertently changing the operating system.


Figure 193: Red Hat login screen

After booting to Red Hat, we’re asked for our username. Hit “Enter” after entering your username to go to the password screen.

 



Figure 194: Red Hat password screen

Enter your case-sensitive password and hit “Enter.”
