During installation, you were prompted for a password for the root user.  
This is regardless of whether you chose to add a normal user.

Login in as 'root' and supply the password when prompted.  If you don't 
recall setting a password, try hitting [enter] and see if it lets you 
in without one.

Note Well:  If you did not set a password for root, you need to do so.  
Once you're logged in as root, set a password by executing the command:


Best of luck,
