    root password?

    arreay Lurker





      I downloaded VMware Player and Ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS from the Virtual Appliance Marketplace to run Linux on my Windows Vista machine.  The download page for Ubuntu gave me a user name and password, but the password is apparently just for the one username and not the root password, as I tried doing su and it wasn't correct.  I also looked in the /home directory and only saw a folder for vmplanet, the username I got from the download page, but no folder for root.  Is the root password hidden somewhere in the downloaded files, or can I just not sign in as root using VMware Player?  Sorry for the simple question, but I don't know what to do.  Thanks!
