No one in particular, but one good thing is to give more precision:
- If you Ctrl-Alt-F2 and try to login: what happens?
- If you boot from a live CD/USB, you will be able to chroot then
overwrite the password

Lawrence,

I think you are on the wrong list: file your question to the fedora test
mailing list: test@lists.fedoraproject.org

Kind regards

I have never tried anything because this is my first install of Fedora
18. I am trying to load it in VMware Workstation 9. It does okay until
it reboots and the localhost login prompt comes up. I am not sure what
to put there. I appreciate your help.

What are you expecting at that point? (That is, were you expecting a GUI and
did not get it?)
