By werewolf do you really mean Fedora 8?
You should of been asked to enter a password for root and to create a regular user and a password for it. Do you remember?
Most distributions do not allow root to login from the GUI login prompt but try it anyway and see what happens.

root is the same thing as administrator in windows.
