I have tried my normal ID to no avail.....I wasn't asked for any others at setup(?)
Is there a default.....how do I get in please?
how about trying root and the root password, SuSE must have asked you to supply one during install. Or if you get a CLI login, the same applies (if you have kde desktop - which I believe is the SuSE default - it may be that the kde is set so as not to allow graphic root login - search here to change that if you want I'm sure I've seen it mentioned).
Once you get into your system, change the password for the user account
hit enter and then supply the new password.
p.s. I can't remember for SuSE, but when I try to get into this Kubuntu install of mine in safe mode (Kubuntu seems to call it "recovery mode"), it will only let me in as root.
