Are You logging from the shell (command line) ? You could try with:
mysql -u root -p
after this mysql will ask You for the password (I`m not sure how it looks like in the Fedora, but there should be question about default password at the end of installation)

or maybe:


mysqladmin -u root password ‘new-password’
