I think there is confusion about exactly when you get the login
screen.  Could you describe in detail what you are doing and when you
get the login prompt?  For example it is not clear whether it is when
you are booting off the CD or starting the install itself or after the
install or what.

Please do not just say that it is when booting off CD, give us more
detail about what happens.
