I had no clue what was happening on install. I searched the mag and the disc
and unfortunately I can't find any login or password detail. I tried typing
different stuff but to know avail...

First, welcome to a whole new world. :)

When you were installing the OS, at one point, it asked you for an
administrative or Super User password. This password will be the root
account password. So, the login will be root with the password that you
provided. Keep in mind, that you can only use this account from the system
