Initially, there are no users preinstalled. The user "root" (usually
associated with the role of the system administrator) is meant to do
this. This account has an empty password.

	login: root
	Password: <ENTER>
	# _

You can (and probably should) set a password then with the "passwd"
command. Add users with the "adduser" or "pw" command.

See "man adduser", "man pw", and "man passwd" for details.
