I'm glad to hear Clonezilla is working fine as a deployment tool.  I had 
imagined that there might be some issues with such usage across various

Someone else with more pointed experience may say more.

But to simply answer the questions:
- Change the admin P/W via Menu: System Tools: Users and Groups
- Rename the computer: This is actual renaming the host.  See
