root with rescue disc
 
i tried getting throw rescue disc of fedora core 3 cd 1

but i couldnot log in as root

i wrote su and i could not log in as root

those any one knows how i log in as root when im in rescue mode?

what are the commands and all that?

the rescue mode IS runnign as root, or rather, single-user mode. you don't log in, you don't change users. you're just plain root...

i cant see the files i need and i cant even enter some of my folders!!

so how do i get to them if in rescue mode he says some dose not agsist and some he wont let me open not even folders its driving me crazy

The rescue disk should mount your / partition at /mnt/sysimage.
Navigate to that directory to see your real files and folders.

What does
mount
by itself give you?
