I just booted my PC in Vector Linux 7.0 Standard Live Edition. It is a bootable version of Linux that requires no installation. I am currently booting of a DVD-RW. The problem I am running into is the default password for root has already been set. It didn't prompt me to create a user or password at any point. In fact the first time I booted it all that happened was the Operating System loaded up. All I have done since them is run a portable netbeans and try to access the hard drive. When I tried to access the hard drive I got the following error.
Authentication is required to mount the device
An application is attempting to perform an action that requires privileges. Authentication as the super user is required to perform this action.
Password for root: _______???
I found a few password suggestions on forms like root and vector, but these didn't work. If you would like to experiment with the OS burn it to DVD. See if you can figure out the solution to the problem. Here is the download link: http://vectorlinux.com/downloads
