Name+Pass Word SOLVED

Postby bj218 » Mon Aug 25, 2008 5:25 pm

I just installed Mint 5 and on my first boot it says either my name or password is incorrect.
What do I do now, is there a way around this or do I have to do another install?

Did you create a root password?

Well if you do not remember your username and password, and did not create a root password, there is not much you can do as far as I know.
