The root password is root, and the guest account password is guest, if you have not installed it to the hard drive.

See this link. -->

If you have installed to the HD, then you should create an account for yourself, and create a password for yourself and change the root password to something that is secure.

For some strange reason, the PCLinuxOS site doesn't link to this
but it will probably tell you all you need to know.
