It depends on what exactly is meant.
I'm pretty sure there is no need in 4.0 as it is old and may be not secure. Why would you possibly want that?
Anyway if you look through the same page, you will find older releases.

They are all the same except for the desktop environment (Gnome/KDE/Xfce/LXDE). If you don't know which one you want, maybe start with Gnome (the original)?

dd1313,
The difference between all of the CDs are the environment you get once it is run.

debian-live-503-i386-gnome-desktop.iso
This CD is a Live CD version of Debian Linux with the Gnome Graphical Environment. This is the default environment offered if you install Debian Linux.

debian-live-503-i386-kde-desktop.iso
This CD is a Live CD version of Debian Linux with the KDE Graphical Environment.

debian-live-503-i386-lxde-desktop.iso
This CD is a Live CD version of Debian Linux with the LXDE Graphical Environment. this is a very light weight Graphical Environment and uses little resources.

debian-live-503-i386-rescue.iso
This is a Live CD version of Debian Linux designed to repairing a broken system.

debian-live-503-i386-standard.iso
This is a Live CD version of Debian Linux without a Graphical Environment. This is a Command Line only version of Debian Linux.

debian-live-503-i386-xfce-desktop.iso
This CD is a Live CD version of Debian Linux with the XFCE Graphical Environment. this is a very light weight Graphical Environment and uses little resources.

Does that answer all of your questions?

With it being a live cd there probably is not a password for root. You may already be root as well. Here are a few useful commands to know

Code:
whoami
This command tells you what user you are running as. for example if you are root, and execute whoami, it will return root. If you are bob and run whoami, it will return bob.

Code:
passwd
This command is used to change your password. Alternative root can change anyones password by running passwd username

Code:
pwd
This command stands for present Working Directory. As you may guess, it tells you where you are at in the file system.

Code:
su
This command stands for switch user. If you type su, it is assumed you are switching to the root account. Alternatively you can type su username to switch to another account. You must know the password of the account you are switching to.
