Logging in as root

At the "login:" prompt, type "root" then return. At the password prompt enter the root password.  (Root's password is the one you chose during the installation process.)

In general, you should use the root account to do system administration only.  For instance, you would want to use the root account to add packages, remove packages, configure your networking, and in some cases shut the system down.  For day-to-day operation of your MkLinux system, you should create and use a user account for yourself.
