Default passwords for admin accounts

I've installed Oracle but can't get into the database because I don't know the user or the password of the system/sysadmin. Can you help ?

The default passwords out of the box for admin-type accounts are:

SYS - change_on_install
SYSTEM - manager
INTERNAL - oracle (Windows only, null for Unix)
Try one of those userid/password combinations.
