I have installed ubuntu 6.06.1 on my laptop after the HDD went pear shaped
and i had to reformat. trying linux on it, but have played about with it
very basically a couple of years age, my problem is that on installing
ubuntu it does not ask for a password for root, and i cannot find anything
in the documentation, i am probably missing something obvious, but i cannot
get root access, is there a standard initial root password or am i going
senial, and investing in vista!

thankyou in advance

ps i love it so far!
