My many thanks to both, you John and Larry.
Before I ask my question, I think you need some more background on my situation.
I purchased my linux box with VL 5.8 SOHO "final version" pre-installed. The instructions that came with the box included:
User name: "madtux"
The instructions went on to say: "we recommend that after starting the system, you change that you change the "user name", "user password", "root password", which I did. Please note: It said nothing about a "root user name". I never needed one because when I used the terminal, I simply used the "su" command and added my new su password, I was in "su mode".
Now being new to linux, I simply assumed that this was normal. VASM does not have any place to add a "root user name".
Now, to make a long story shorter, "CUPS" will not accept any combination of my user name and pass words, so I'm stopped right there.
Finally my question: Since I am new to linux, and I have never had to file a bug report, "How and to whom do I file a 'bug report' "?
