You can enter `root` for the login and what ever you set the password too for the password. Once your in you can create a new user account if you like (general a good idea as running as root is never a good practice).

*note that when you enter the password nothing will show up, everything is hidden.

On a side note, once the root user and root's password is successful.. I would add a user to the system that may su to root, or has sudo privs. never a good idea to log in as root unless you are doing some administration that requires it.

When your having a issue with linux just have a good quick google search and there is usually some post on a forum that has the answer. From over the years using linux i have ran into issues where i have had to search the net for hours for some things on linux, just making a suggestion to learn the OS better and get a answer quicker.

Spend a few hours reading linux sites and see what others have had issues with, with anything study is the answer.
