Worked through first install of 8.04 and must have done something wrong? 1st screen asked for username and login??? Don't recall putting anythine in during install, just hit enter?? Anyhow, read through days of post's and found how to find passwd and username as
ls /home gave me username and passwd username gave me option of changing username which I did.
Still can't get by password and username login screen. This is the first time I've ever seen ubuntu so kinda need specific help.
Using info found at the Root but still get "Invalid username or password in Red??

The username and password is case sensitive so check to see if that might be the problem. Try booting into recovery mode and changing the password in recovey mode
If that does not work then since it is a new install maybe consider reinstalling but check the md5sum (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM) of the iso you downloaded and also check the cd for defects (one of the options at the main menu of the ubuntu cd) as there should have been a stage where you would create a user and password through the installation process.
