You should have entered one while installing the system.

  - Reboot the system.
  - If you don't see a LILO prompt, reboot and hold <shift> key.
  - At the LILO prompt, type:

      linux init=/bin/sh

  - At prompt:

      $ mount -o remount,rw /
      $ passwd          # you will be prompted for a new password.
                        # Remember it.
      $ mount -o remount,ro /

   - Shut down the system (power off or reset switch).

You should now have a root password.  Create a user account and use it
rather than root.  Read the manual.
