I just bought LinuxPPC. I installed it but I cannot log in (I use "root" as username and the password I entered during installation). What could I do?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Aren't you typing the password wrong? Don't forget UNIXes are case-sensitive, so if you typed your password in uppercase, that's how you should do now. Same for your username. If everything else fails, you'll have to reinstall, because you've probably forgot your password.
