I have not been able to sign in as a result. (pretty anti-climactic) Is there a default UID because I don't remember creating one.
Any suggestions would be appreciated... Thank You.
Not familiar with Vector linux, but some distros (like openSUSE), have a check box when you create a user, to use that password as the administrator (root) password. Try to use the user ID "root", with the password you know.
Once in, use *EXTREME*
caution. Root should be used sparingly. Open a terminal, and type in "cat /etc/passwd". Look towards the bottom of the file, and look for a user ID that looks familiar.
