I searched, and could not find an answer to what should be obvious, but...
Today, I DL'd the Xubuntu version of trusty-desktop-i386.iso from
I was able to get it on a 4GB USB thumb drive, using Unetbootin, and it boots OK to my little ASUS EEE PC901. But when I choose "Try Xubuntu w/o Installing', it asks for a name and password.
Do I need to sign up as a tester to get a password? I didn't see anything about this. Or is my install hosed? MD5SUM was good on the downloaded iso.
