Is there a default user id and password for linux mint 11

Post by jrw45 »

Because of slow running problems with mint 12 I am trying to install mint 11 but get stopped at the second screen for a user ID and password. Unless I am spelling it wrong I tried 'administrator' for both ID and PW as suggested in one of the linux forums.
I can't believe I am the only one that hasn't been halted by the unknown. Is there a way to get around the user ID and PW when doing fresh install or am I using the wrong id and pw?

thanks Guys

and sorry if I'm posting in the wrong area but the subject does refer to Installing.
