I never used Cent OS but I did the same thing with FreeBSD. I use it for an in house server on my LAN, no remote access.

It should have asked you for a root password during the install. If you don't remember what you did, try:

i do remember my root password but when the program starts it asks for a localhost username and during setup it does not ask for this to be created

What program are we talking about? Are you getting a login box with localhost in it as a user name? Have you tried your root password?


When I setup FreeBSD as a server, after the installation, I enabled SSHD and FTPD and that was it. Then I could transfer files with FTP from any machine on the network and use SSH for configuration, also from any machine.

You shouldn't need anything else.
