No user except for Root can log in.
I even tried to create a new user. If I try to log in as a user It just reloads the login window. What can I do?

You must have done something wrong during the install process where you create a non-root user. OK - login as root (linux-tui) then run "vasm". Then choose USER, ADD and go through the process.

Damn you are right.... Wheres all the space LOL. Thanks!

Is there a way I can "move" 5.9 Gold from /dev/sda7 to /dev/sda1 ? /dev/sda1 has 5.8 soho (if that matters)

dd if=/dev/sda7 of=/dev/sda1 bs=4096 notrunc

that should work, but I've never tried it and if something goes wrong /dev/sda1 is toast. You would have to reload onto sda1. dd is very powerful but very dangerous if done incorrectly. Make sure also both of those partitions are unmounted before you do that command. If you use lilo you will have to fix /etc/lilo.conf as appropriate and rerun lilo.

Better make some backups before playing around with dd.
