Ubuntu Linux CD: Default Username and Password

Can you tell me the default username and password for an Ubuntu Live CD? How do I login using Ubuntu Linux live cd?

There is no password for the default user called ubuntu. System will automatially boot without any password. All you’ve to do is click on Ubuntu user. However, sometime ISO images are corrupted. So you need to burn new image.

    i bought a toshiba satellite from a pawn shop and i do not know the administrator password to log in or to do anything with it for that matter. all i know at this point is that it has ubuntu as a default server. How can I override the administrator password and create my own?
