Admin login problem

Posted 06-01-2009 at 08:17 PM by davpattei

i recently installed linux, the problem is i did it while i was drunk and i forgot my user name but i remember the password because anytime the computer asks for root password i can login but when i start up as root access is denied. And my other question is that can you run PHLAK as a stand alone OS as a newbie and what are the risks if any. Thank you.
