Hello, new to Makulu and this forum. I booted to the iso disc I created and got a log in screen requesting a user name and password, I don't see anyway around it and haven't found any instructions or forum threads discussing it. How do I get to the desktop so I can install Makulu?

Are you sure you wrote the DvD correctly ? it should be auto login, should not ask for username or password.
but since it does, it is : username : makulu password : makulu make sure numlock is off.

I agree with the above that it should really logon automatically. If it doesn't it is usually caused by a bad download of the iso file or it didn't burn properly. At least I've seen that type of behavior on other distro's. Try downloading it again, and burning it to DVD again, using the lowest possible burning speed.
Or even better than burning it to a DVD, use the Windows tool "WinSetupFromUSB" to "burn" the iso to a bootable USB stick. Although the tool's name suggests it is only for Windows iso's, it actually works very well for Linux distro's too: http://www.winsetupfromusb.com/downloads/ When you run the tool, it lists your USB sticks that are connected to your PC. enable "Auto format it with FBinst". This will format the stick, so make sure there is no data on it that you haven't saved yet. Then enable the checkbox next to "Linux ISO/Other Grub4dos compatible ISO", and then select the Makulu-Aero-Edition iso you just downloaded. The nice thing about this tool is that you can mix several Linux distro's as well as Windows iso's on the same stick (just for the next iso make sure you DON'T format the stick again), and you get a menu at bootup where you can select which OS you want to start. One of the big advantages in using a USB stick is that it is faster to boot from and to run your LiveISO from than if you were to use a DVD, and you don't produce any coasters.
