As far as I know, the root account is not enabled by default. Best bet is to boot up in recovery mode, and edit sudoers.

Subject: root password?
I installed 7.10 onto a USB jump drive and tried to create a new
user. In the process I did something bad to the sudoers file. I
can't edit it because I can't sudo. I can't login as root because I
don't know the password. What's the password for root on the live
