Hi & Welcome to LQ-

After the system boots you should have a login screen.
At that screen type in your username and password.

The Owner and Supervisor/Administrator of Ultimate Edition Oz can be reached here.
You have to register--

Thank you
During the installation process you should have told the installer a username and a root password to be able to install software and apply updates:-

You can login using the terminal via console mode only.
Hold down Ctrl+Alt+F2 and that will bring you to commandline mode to login but if you didn't set a username or root password I don't see how you can gain access to the operating system.

Do you have the Ultimate Edition CD/DVD or the iso image on a usb stick?

If so, you should re-install UE and create the necessary accounts--

I'll ask around and see if it is possible to access a os w/o these accounts.
If it's possible I'll post back.

I have a DVD I burned from an ISO downloadl
When I try to install on computer it asks for a username and password so I am stuck.
Obviously I would not have a username and Password as I have never have had it installed anywhere.
