Ok, sorry, but I'm new to this linux thing...
I do remember the password I set in setup!
When I turn on the machine, it comes up with LILO: and I press enter, right? then in loads the kernel and other stuff, also it starts a lot of services.  It clears the screen and comes up...
Red Hat Linux release 5.0 (Hurricane)
Kernel 2.0.32 on a i486
localhost login:_
OK, so what do I type here, I've tryied Admin, Administrator etc and it doesn't work with that password I confirmed in setup. I currently run NT server and 4 Win95 clients at my house and simply want to "learn and play" with linux- so how do I get into it?

The login is: "root" (without quotes)
The password will be whatever you specified when you setup the machine.

BTW, the root account is the equivalent of an administrator account on an NT machine, roughly.  I would reccomend you get a book on Linux, or at least Unix, because you may be very lost very shortly.  Feel free to email me, though, if you have any other questions.

Best Wishes,
