"New Login", as mentioned below, is a function of the login display manager.
The writer below mentions using gdm, the GNOME display manager. Other options
typically available are kdm, the KDE display manager, and xdm, the default X
Window System display manager. I believe that Fedora Core ships with gdm, so
try using it. The problem may be that the login display you're using obscures
this feature in some way, but it ought to be there, nevertheless.
