Description hal 2007-04-28 23:13:42 UTC
Description of problem: When the fc7 test4 cd is booted, it winds up at a login
screen that requests a user name.  It's not the least obvious what to do next. 
I tried typing my existing fc6 user name and password, but, not too
surprisingly, that didn't work.  I tried a few other random things, and when I
entered "root" for the user name I was logged in without having to enter a password.

This is not the least obvious, particularly to a new, non-unix user.  Much
better would be for the livecd to automatically log the user in and leave
him/her at the desktop.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from FC7 test4 CD
Actual results: Waits for user to log in

Expected results: Should wind up at the desktop

Should be evident what to do once the face browser, sporting a Fedora logo, is
present. Hence duplicate of bug 235114.
