  1. Yes, it will prompt you to select an admin password after installation.

  2. In linux the administrator login name is root. You’ll use root as username and whatever password you set it or if you are using live CD then it’ll be mentioned on the CD box or on the website you downloaded it from. Good Luck !!!!

  3. if you have logon into linux
    you will get
    $
    prompt
    means it is normal shell
    if you want admin like rights
    then

    do following things

    $ sudo su -
    # passwd
    New password: (Enter your new password)
    Re-enter password: (Re-enter your password)

    the main user in linux is root and not Administrator

    Anything else ?
