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?

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.

By the way... Do you have a PowerPC? Mac?
