Smile Password


I am using both RedHat and XP. After using XP for about of month, I thought Of using Redhat. But I forgot the password.
Is there any other option except reinstalling RedHat?

Yess, boot the redhat in single user mode and then you can change the root password
#passwd password(just like this)
