    Passwordless logins

    How would I enable (mind you, I normally have shadow/md5 options on for the other accts) a passwordless account ?

    I want this for two reasons :

    --making root passwordless for a distro install CD.
    --making a bastardized acct on a box for lan games.

    edit /etc/shadow you'll see something like:

    r00t:$1$1ctFui0f$GSS78vCghwRy5lEJ1vvo91:11401:0:99 999:7:::

    change to:

    r00t::11401:0:99999:7:::
    notice the double colon after r00t, this is to make the encrypted password field empty

    Thanks gorn. I appreciate that. I completely missed the shadow file. I screwed with gshadow I think. That did not have the passowrd field, as shadow does. Thanks!
