I am really sick of windows, so I decided to try installing Ubuntu Linux on my old PC to see how I like it. First I ran the live CD and it seemed to run well, so I decide to install it on my hard drive, and banish windows forever. Installation is nice and easy and I had no trouble at all. I loved the fact that I didn't need to install any additional drivers.

Here's the trouble:

When i boot up I get to the log in screen. Unfortunatly, I didn't write down my user name, and I don't remember what it is. I know my password, but when I try to log in, it asked for my user name also. I am new to Linux, and I'm stuck. Does anyone have a clue how to reset a user name?

Any help would be really appreciated!
