I have a HP all in one printer, and am having some configuration problems.

First xsane does not detect it.

Second HPLIP will not let me configure it. When I try it asks for me to login as root. I have no idea how to do this. I tried the username and password I set up with Suse when I installed but it does not work.

I previously had Suse 11.1 installed on another computer and I never ran into this problem. I am using an Acer Extensa 4420-5963 laptop.

HELP! please
