    First of all is BT2 installed on the HD or USB drive or something of that nature? If so then what you are going to want to do is:

    At the login screen for BT2 use the Username: root password: toor
    at this point you can either type in the interface that you use IE: startx, X system...

    At this prompt instead of typing in the interface command type passwd..
    It will ask you for a new password. Type in the new password and and then it will ask you to type it in again to confirm it..
    After you type it in twice your new root password will be the one that you just typed in.. Go ahead after that and start your interface.. As far as the users go you are going to want to google: Slackware Basics and download it.. That should have all of the easy slackware questions you may have..

    login as username : root password:toor
    then at this prompt type passwd (to change root password.)
    type your new password twice.
    type adduser (to add new user)
    type your username and password for new user

    Another thread that has thankfully outlived its usefulness.
