retrieving password using live CD
OK so I was given this computer at my gradschool with SuSe installed on it. A person who had this copmuter has left, and I am trying to change the root password so I can access the machine. I have a live CD (Knoppix 3.9) and I tried to mount HD read/write like this:
mount -o rw /mnt/sda1
but I get the message that only root has a permission to do that.
I also tried
mount -o remount,rw /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
with the same result.
What should I do to get around this? Thanks.
