I am new here and unfortunately not too experienced with Linux. I've neglected learning using the OS for way too long
Anyway I am an assistant in the Civil Engineering and Environmental Science department at Ohio State University. I'm working on some old Linux boxes that a former assistant left here.
I have the root login and password, but I need to change the password so that we can have a standard one and distribute it to other administrators in the department.
Can someone explain how to change it ? One is running Mandrake linux 9.1 and two other machines are running Redhat 8 I believe.
Thanks in advance,
