        Does anyone know the root password for pubuntu?  I would really like to install software on this distro and I am unable because I can't change the root password.

      The password is 123456. You need use sudo to gain root access.

      This is Windows' fault, because on a real Linux installation NumLock actually works :) You can't make it on at boot though, as far as I know...
      Indeed it's an inconvenience, I just live with it...
      It's not CapsLock it's NumLock btw :))
