Red face I need a password to begin using ubuntu 12.04.1


I have downloaded Ubuntu 12.04.1 2 days ago but i can't use it because i haven't a password for that! i want to get one and need an emergency help to begin with this OS!

After downloading and installing ubuntu next Windows by Wubi Installer, before contacting LQ.org! It is when starting Ubuntu that is asked to me a password to log in and when i put the password installation in wubi, the login always fails with wrong password! (the same with which i'm logged in LQ.org!)

Of what password are you talking about?
Have you already installed the system or this password is preventing you from it?
