    Recover Root Pass

    I'm not the moderator here, but that is a bad question. No offense, but you or anyone else could use this information to compromise a system.

    Though, I will say you have to be directly at the console.

    'nuff said. Sorry.

    Re:

    Dear
    Salam,

    You can recover your root password by logging into your system as Single User Mode !!

    If you are using Lilo then you can type at lilo: linux 1 and it will let you in Single User Mode !!

    If you are using Grub then you need to press e when grub menu showed then there is line which strarts with kernel highlight that line and type e again and then in the last of that like put -s and press escape and press b to boot your System it will let you in Single User Mode !!

    and then change your password by passwd command !!

    Best Regards.
