Question password problem topologilinux

I installed the lite version of topologilinux 2.0 and the install went well until after installing the system said.
Your first login.... login as root.
I typed root and it asked for a password and that is were I am stuck. Any suggestions? I tried just hitting enter there and using root again and some linux lingo but cannot find the answer.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Jonathan, new to linux

if you didn't specify a root pass word during the install process
then it may be that one has been added for you
in which case browse the cd and look for a txt file
if the password is preset then there should be mention of it somewhere

Thanks for the insight

I will check for a txt file and see if there is something as I don't remember being given the option to pick a password.
