  1. At least RTFM. The answer is obvious. UBUNTU BY DEFAULT DOES NOT HAVE A ROOT PASSWORD.

    or

    Seriously if you can't be bothered to read the documentation then no one will help you.

    [cpp]sudo passwd root[/cpp]

    learn apt-get commands (just search on it)

    For example:
    [cpp]sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install aptitude[/cpp]
    then just type in [cpp]sudo aptitude[/cpp] and see how it works.
