I needed to use the *root* password, the user password wouldn't work. I
actually had to go to a shell and use "sudo passwd root" to set a root
password as my install didn't have one. I found that odd as Ubuntu generally
uses the user password. Nothing wrong with editing the config files manually
though. :)
