    i just installed a fresh copy of debian. when it booted up it asked me to set my password, which i did, expecting it would set the admin pass to that as well as the default "parallels" account pw. BTW: the default "parallels" account is NOT an administrator. what??

    however, the "admin" (root?) password is NOT my password. it's also not "parallels". i don't know what it is.
    so when i go to the "users" control panel and attempt to unlock it so i can add users or change my password, it asks for the Administrator password, WHICH I DON'T HAVE.

    what is the default admin password?
