Welcome to LQ.

my Linux cd
Which one would that be ? ?

Usually the password is "on screen", for live cds.

Examples : Kali/Backtrack : The root password is toor.
PCLinuxOS : The root password is root. User guest : Password is guest.

OK, got it. You mean Hiren’s BootCD 12.0 , Wed, Nov 10, 2010.
http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/

Hiren 12 : Not updated for four years : Not really safe to use.
.. And all the "Anti Virus tools" are useless.

Google, hirens boot cd 15.2 password reset
https://www.google.com/webhp?hl=all&...password+reset

Version : Please use " 15.2 "
http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
. ftp://mirrors.dk.telia.net/pub/mirro...ootCD.15.2.zip
