recently received a computer from our Church, older compaq, has edubuntu 8.4 installed. Do not have user name or password, edubuntu is very new to me but willing to learn. How do I reset the username and password?

thanks

Micheal

Do that.

Also, Just a friendly reminder, (I don't blame you as you are new to the forums), don't ever put your personal stuff (e-mail adresses, phone number,etc.) in the forums.
