Fresh install and root password "password" doesnt work!

Hi guys, I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 7.04. I used the installation help
for Ubuntu on the wiki for 7.04.
Everything went off without a hitch.

But I try to log in with u=root pw=password and it tells me invalid user!
I have search high and low on how to fix but most posts just talk about
using MySQL to fix it. Well, I am not using that, per the wiki I have
postgres (8.1) installed.
I am not a programmer, so a clear cut command 1., command 2 list of
instructions would be most helpful.

You help, I send cookies. =-)

Cancel that. I formatted, installed ubuntu 7.04, updates, rt 3.4
(instead of 3.6) and it worked flawlessly.

Thanks for listening though!
