Never mind.


Never mind.
But this does brings up a question. Can you change your root password if you have physical access to your computer?
Or is reinstalling the only option?

this may help:
How to change root user password, if forgotten?
01) Read me:

01b) Only applies in True Console mode
02) Follow the instructions "How to gain root user access without login?"
03) To change root user password:
03a) sh-2.05b# passwd root
04) Done!

anything is possible when you have physical access to a machine.
