Hi

Just downloaded Debian 8.1 - i386.
Tried booting from the CD, which asks for a login and password but these aren't documented.
Tried root/root - root/password none worked.

Can someone advise.

thanks

Which CD?

You didn't say what specific CD you're booting.

Debian Live CDs typically don't have a "root" user. They just use the "su" command to do root/system commands.
