Administrators:
SYSTEM
SYS as SYSDBA

Enterprise manager administrator:
SYSMAN

If you set up a password then that was for the three accounts above

Don't use the administrator's accounts for testing or learning, start learning how to create users instead, so you can set up new schemas in the users tablespace for any purpose.

Also, there are a few sample accounts that may have been set up by default and that may help you in learning Oracle such as SCOTT, HR, OE, etc. --Learn how to unlock them, since a lot trainings systems (inclusing Oracle University) out there use them for teaching...

good luck!

Connect to sys user and create your own user to test everything.
 here are steps to login to sys user
launch SQL* plus from server
SQL > connect sys as sysdba
password :                 <-- leave blank and enter
connected
create user test identified by test;
grant dba to test;

now in the same SQL window, type below connect command
SQL> connect test/test
connected.
Now you are in you are connected to your own user with DBA peivileges. start your work here.

When you install Oracle 10g you were asked about the
SYS and SYSTEM password. You have to write them down and keep.
If you have forgotten the passwords then logon on box as the OS user who has installed Oracle.
Now try to logon without password:
 % sqlplus /nolog
SQL> connect  / as sysdba
connected

Now you can reestablish the password (it exists, but you do not know it):

SQL>alter user sys identified by manager

So the password will be 'manager' or what you choose.

If you have completed above steps told by schwertner then username = sys and password=manager.
for host string, you have to check the entry of your database SID in tnsnames.ora file. the entry looks like below
ora10g =
  ( DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP) (Host = mrs-dv-00014) (Port = 1560))
        (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = ORCL)(SERVER = DEDICATED))
  )

In this case, your host string will be "ora10g"  without double quotes
