    According to the PowerLinux™ installation FAQ page (http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/lnxinfo/v3r0m0/index.jsp?topic=%2Fliaae%2Fliaaefaq.htm):

    Q: What is the default password for my server?
    A:

    If your system was shipped preloaded with Linux, then the default password is passw0rd.

    If it was an IBM factory install, the password is on a single sheet of paper that arrived with the server's installation and safety information.
