Hello people.....New here.
Well,I decided to try to learn Linux,so that I can dump windows and hopefully be a bit more secure out there. To this end,a few months ago ,I bought a second laptop specifically to put Linux on it (so that I have a 'clean' install).
Now.....a fella that I sort of know (who used to run a small computer shop) dual booted my second laptop with Linux Mint (14 or 15 from memory) and Windows 7. The problem is that I've not used this laptop for so long that I've totally forgotten the username and password for it !! Brilliant eh ??
..... I've sort of got it in my head that the password is 'password',believe it or not ! So.....the question is: How can I get into the Linux side to even start investigating what's what with this system,please ?? I should point out that I've not actually used this install,since it was put there,so the username / password is not something that I've devised.
I suppose that I should also say that I'm not much above novice level,especially when it comes to Linux. My first computer had XP on it (when it had just been launched),and that is the only system that I've ever used....
Anyone help me out here,please ??
