Description of problem:
Anaconda allows to set password for Grub. In Grub1 only password was required. Grub2 asks for a user name first. It works with "root", but it can be surprised for people using Grub1 earlier.
Anaconda could inform about user name for grub during the installation process.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version available in Fedora 16 Alpha
This seems like the sort of thing that would be best discussed in either release notes or in documentation.
Thanks for reporting this, Marcin.
At the two points in the guide that address setting a bootloader password, I've explained that when that password is later required, a username will be as well. At your suggestion, I've said that the username should be the generic 'root'.

Looks good, thanks Jack.
Removing myself for these bug components as I'm either no longer involved in that aspect of the project, or no longer care to watch this particular bug. Sorry if you are caught in a maelstrom of bug changes as a result!
Just a note. On F16 at least, you can edit /etc/grub.d/01_users to change the username if you wish.
Thanks for the addition, Paul.
Added in commit e336f84e67911a8485d537f5b059fdb5cbd90c5e for the F17 version of the guide.
