You just type:
CTRL ALT F2
And enter the new password. Enter after each of those lines..
Welcome to LQ :)
In the future, this forum is for introducing yourself, questions relating to Linux should be asked in the relevant forum ;)
thanx and sry 4 the missplaced post
well... to make up....
im dynamic and my friendz just got me into linux and i couldnt be happier!
just by the way they talk and what ive seen 4 myself i can clearly see that this is a superior OS and im really dissapointed that its not supported by more games and stuff!
i mean come on now! what version of windows has ever enabled you to run a whole OS on nothing but a CD!!! and on top of that... RUNING A FTP SERVER OFF OF THAT CD!!! and i cant beleave how easy it was to set it up!!
3 cheerz to linux!
