Changing root password of Mandrake with SuSE CD.
I have Mandrake Linux 9.1 installed on my dual-boot Intel celeron 1.7 GHz system.
I want to change its root password since I've lost the original password. But I don't have the Mandrake CDs with me to do that. Instead I have a SuSE Linux 9.0 Live Eval CD.
Can I use that to change the root password? If yes can you please tell me the sequence of steps and commands to do it since I am a Linux newbie?
