[gNewSense-users] Did I miss setting the root password?

I'm an experienced developer, but I'm new to Linux. When I installed gNewSense today, it asked me to set up a username/password, but I don't recall it asking me to set up a password for root. Now when I try to do 'su' in a terminal window, it asks me for a password. No password I try works. I've tried the password for the login I set up, I've tried 'password' and 'Password' and I tried leaving it blank. I searched the mailing list archives and Google, but couldn't find any info. Thanks very much for any pointers.
