The liveCD logs in as root with a random password on bootup ... if you changed the password, then login as root with the password you set.

If you didn't set a password, just reboot, and start where you left off after mounting the partitions and chrooting. No harm done.

you sure you changed your password?

#passwd
Type Your New UNIX Password: (invisible typing)
Retype Your UNIX Password: (invisible retyping)
Password changed successfully!
#


something like that ( i am in osx, and the syntax is not the same, so i am remembering as best as i could)

what i do whenever i start an install, is change the password right away, and then logout and log back in to test it....

killfire
