I got Mandrake 8.1 up and running fine, thanks to all the help!
In the setup I was asked to give a password and an option "no password" I chose no password and then created a new user. This new user needed a password.
My problem now is how do I log on as an administrator?
If I log on using the user created in setup I have restricted access!
How can I change the permissions that I currently have?
Also, how do I uninstall sofware?
