HELP! Login & Password - first time


I had a tech company put together my machine and install CentOS 5.6 but They didn't give me the username and password. Is there a generic username and password used for the installation? Or do I have to call the store and find the guy that did the install. I now wish I had installed it myself. Any suggestions? It looks like the user name is CentOS but I have not figured out the password yet.

There are no generics or defaults. I'd ring the guys first; if they're not
forthcoming, and you can convince people here you own the box we can tackle
it from there ....
