this is the command prompt where you enter system administration commands.
I recommend that you type
the following
root@localhost /root# linuxconf
this will bring you some kind of graphical interface that you use to configure your system go to where it says users or something like that and add a new user this is the user you should use for now because as root your powers are endless and it is easy to crash the system first explore as a normal user then when you're more familiar use root to configure your system.I recommend that you go to linux.com the begiinners section there is a howto called LAME(Linux Administration MAde Easy that is tailored towards redhat read it it should be a good starting point.
