[Note to admin: If you prefer me to make separate threads I will]
1. How do you change the root password? Having it as what is by default seems fairly insecure to me. I'd like to change it, preferably to something nice and long.
2. I've created a non-root user that I'd like to use in place of 'tux'. How do I make this new account the default user that logs in when the system starts? And how can I make sure that they have all the correct permissions etc. From my experience with permissions in the past, the default user is often given custom permissions, somewhere between user and admin.
Help much appreciated.
