hi welcome to porteus :)
i've move this topic to "Newby questions" section of the forum.
to help, we need some more information:
which version of porteus (ie 3.1 or 3.2 etc)
which desktop? (xfce, kde or ?)

hi, if you are new to Linux, no need to create new user. User already created for you, which is guest, and which Just about all of us use. :)

Also read the topics at start of Tutorials section of Forum.

Guest user is the normal user under porteus, adding another user is not recommended, at least under porteus 3.1:
Prendre son temps, profiter de celui qui passe.
