Your login is the same one you use to login to the computer. "mark
login: " is asking for the name you use, and the next thing will ask
for the password. If you are the only user on the system, the root
password is your password you use to login to the computer. 

No stupid people here, just people that don't know the answers and
don't ask (or pretend they do).

As I said, I don't know if this will work, just another thing to try.

good luck,
