Well, I finally gave up. I did find out that if I used the text installer I wouldn't have any login problems. Unfortunately, I had horrible X problems. This, even after I hand configured xorg.conf (easy peasy). Consequently, I tossed the disk into the trash, formatted the drive, and installed a competing distro. I hope that it was just a bad disk and not indicative of a buggy distro because it seems so right for me. Too bad I paid for that disc. Perhaps, when the economy improves, along with my financial situation, I will buy another disc and try again.
