A bad idea indeed. I only kept trying with this dvd to find the root cause of
the problem.
I did the media check and it was bad. The error said "The media which was
just tested has errors. This could be due to a corrupt download or bad disc..."
So, the moral of the story is (as Tim suggested) test the media at least once.
I have had bad media before that would not even start. But this one went on
all the way.
Is rather amusing how this "No root login" thing evolved to just a bad disc.
I apologize for not having had the patience to do a basic media check.

Thanks for your patience Jeff and everyone.
