Knoppix when run Live does not have a root PW really... You may execute commands from the terminal using "sudo" or type "su" <enter> for a root terminal...

I have seen, however, that some programs when run even as root will ask for a root PW... I think one can be set temporarally using the command:

sudo passwd <enter>
