To my knowledge, SusE doesn't create any username or passwords beyond root, unless you create them. There are pre-made groups to which users can join but I've never heard of a distro creating user accounts automatically.

If the users were created automatically, my only guess is that the password would be root's password.

You have to set the passwords yourself when you install - it prompts you to do this.

And this is moved to Linux-General, the Member Intro section is just for saying hello.

And welcome to LQ
