Start reading the official documentation for linux/unix here: http://www.cacti.net/downloads/docs/html/install_unix.html and the manuals here: http://www.cacti.net/downloads/docs/html/

For a default Fedora installation, try open your browser at

http://localhost/cacti

and use the login/password that you have choosen during the installation

Follow the official documentation here:http://www.cacti.net/documentation.php

cough RTFM cough to be completely honest if you can't manage to login to cacti, you may have a pretty hard time configuring it. It's very powerful but not really "easy". –  Coops Feb 24 '11 at 21:24
