logging in to mandrake 9.1

I have a partition drive with 3 drives win 200 winxp and my third which I just install in mandrake 9.1. When I was installing I chose the option no password thinking that it would just boot to linux. It brings up the login and password screen, but I can not log in. In windows if you do not choose a password it boots right to windows. How to I get into Linux? I have never used linux before and I just installed it yesterday still trying to figure out what went wrong. when I boot up at least I can choose the op I want so I am still able to get here in windows. Thanks SM
