Live CD login Username/Password???
In the last two days i have tried both Knoppix and Mepis Live CD's. And both to either log on or use cetain features are asking me for a username and password????

I am totally stumpt. Mainly as i havent set one!. They were downloadable free ISO's from their distro web pages so i dont know what they could want me to put in.

It may be mentioned somewhere right infront of my nose but i just cant fathom what the username and password could be for these two Live CD's

Thanks from a very embarressed

In knoppix, you simply run 'sudo su'

i assume that mepis is the same, but have never used it.

MEPIS Live CD login

On the live MEPIS CD, demo login is "demo" and root login is "root"

Or, if you like, (at least in Knoppix), run 'sudo passwd root', then type in a root password and the next time you're asked for superuser password, use that one.
