During installation, it's normal to tell it what you want too use as a username and password (dunno about freespire as I've never used it).

failing that, then you might have to log in as root and (yes you will have normally told it what you want to use as the root password) then add a username and password - though it's entirely possible that you aren't allowed graphical root logins - lots of distros prevent that as a security measure.

Last ditch, bung the install disc in again and re-run the install process - then run it carefully, noting down the username and password you want. Of course if you brought the system with it already installed then it should have had the username and password in the docs.

regards

You mean that it doesn't automatically log you in as "freespirelive" or something like that ? It wouldn't normally give you a root password but it should (theoretically) log you into a GUI - much in the same way that knoppix does.

regards

login to freespire

so.. here we go ...

1. Exit the gui and enter "text mode" (press system and.. click .. whatever...)
2. At the freespirelive login prompt: root
[without any password it will login]
3. Then, at the command prompt enter: passwd
4. Enter new UNIX password and retype when asked
5. Enter: startx
... there u go ...

Lord.
