    user login


    Hello,
    I installed mandriva but after booting it asks me to write a user login.
    I canīt remember to have been asked for users name and password during the installation; anyway I havenīt any now, so I canīt log in.
    I tried of installing again, but in one stage Iīve been told that it is not space enough; on the other hand now the wizard of the installation donīt give up in the "partition of the hard drive" stage.
    So what can I do?

    Thank you,
    Miguel
