Login Fails After Install

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – When installing 11.2 via KDE live cd, I chose a password that resulted in a warning to that effect that it was too predictable. However, I chose to "continue" with the install without changing it. My assumption was that it kept the password I chose. However, after the install completed, I was unable to login. Do I have to re-install from scratch? Installation takes a few hours as this test machine is an old Pentium II with 256 MB or RAM. (Distributions)
