Introducing record types and existing data

I want to add two record types to an existing custom object ( that currently has no record types )...


What happens to all the existing data in the custom object once the record type field is added? Are they assigned to the default record type or is the record type for the existing records set to 'None'?


If it is set to None, then what page layout is used for the existing records?

I've discovered that in this case the record type for the existing data is not set and the original page layout has been used for these records. ( which is what I wanted to happen :) )
