    Hey, i just installd LE2k5, was going fine untill I got to the login. Now(as sillly as this sounds) its asking for a username and password I never setup a PW, it did prompt for a user name during the install so i got that.

    Well its late im gona go to bed and if i dont get this sorted by morn i guss il just wipe the HDD and start again(witch will be a pain since its a old AMD K6 )

    Anyway thanks, im useing this older comp as a test rig to see how i like linux, right now 80% of the software in my main rig is open source. Really the only thing holding me back is the game EVE-Online(witch is not runing under linux yet ) so thanks a bunch and see y'all in 7 hours

    PS: that star eyed penguin is kinda freaking me out....

    if you didn't setup a password, then leave it blank. Once you enter Mandriva, goto the MCC and setup your password there.

    At the bare minimum, the system should have asked for a root password.

    try entering root as username and enter root password. once you get into the system, change or add password for a normal user.
