You guys rock! I found out how to use urpmi and I updated a lot of stuff! I also got the right driver for my printer (yay hp supports linux!) . The problem is that to change any of the settings (even adding and removing printers) I have to have my username and pass. I don't belive that I ever put a username and pass! when i want to become the super user in the shell all I've got to type is "su" and I'm done, no pass required! How can I find out for sure, my username and pass?

If you type "su" and it does not ask for a password, you didn't put one in.
After typing "su" and becoming root, type "passwd". Then it will ask you for a new password. Put one in there.
Then you will have to add a user if you haven't done that already.
Should be able to do that in the Mandrake Control Center.How to know if you are a geek.
when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"
