Forgotten login for openSUSE10.2

I am just a beginner with Linux. I installed openSUSE 10.2 but I don't remember the login. Is there a default administrator account where I can log in, even if I don't know the password? Do I need to re-install Linux?

You don't need to re-install. Here, you can find a method to reset your root password. It's a little clunky but it should work. If you run into troubles the forums available at that site should provide further information.
