Regardless of whether or not you set a password, the first user you set
up (or the only user if you only have one user on the machine) will be
an sudo'er..it will probably just not prompt you for a password if one
wasn't set.

If you set a password and then somehow set up autologin and then forgot
the password then you'll need to do the boot in single user mode,
remount / and change/set the root password dance probably.

BTW is there something wrong with your clock..you seem to have replied
to my message before I sent it :)
