Root password

Hi,

I'm new to VMWare.

How can I choose (or get the default) root password when installing CentOS 5.4 on VMWare Workstation?

I'm creating this VM Using CentOS-5.4-i386-bin-DVD.iso.

Couldn't find any step in which I can set root password. The "easy install" is just running without stop, until the OS is installed and a login screen appears.

Thanks,

a MySQL user.

Easy-install is optional - you can also click "I will install later"

That will produce a normal installation of the guest
