    What do you mean, you didn't setup any passwords? you should have setup atleast the root password during install.

    What i suggest you do is, disconnect your Mandriva PC from any network and internet temproarily and type root as username and hit enter i.e. leave password field blank. Then goto the control center and setup a standard user with a password and add a root password to secure your machine.
