need root password for Debian i386 XFCE liveCD
What's the root password on the Debian liveCDs? It apparently isn't "root," and unlike the liveCDs I usually use, the login screen does not reveal the password. I need it because the Debian liveCDs apparently don't include the driver for my wireless card, and I would like to install the driver so the liveCD's installer doesn't get hung up for a long time on trying to detect my network. (It can still go through installation, but only after wasting a lot of time.) If the password is specific to the version, I'm asking about the XFCE i386 version (debian-live-6.0.4-i386-xfce-desktop.iso).
It's bad enough that distro designers make it unduly difficult for users to log in as root. It's worse that they leave out something important that I can't install without root privileges.
