Well I am so sorry it took all these years to come over to the other side.
I have a problem. I recently installed Redhat 9 on a p-3 gateway, which seems to work fine. I have also purchased a gateway laptop on ebay, it came with Redhat installed, which is great, but there is one little glitch in the laptop. No root password came with the thing. Is there a way to reconfigure the root password? there is a load of software on the thing and there is no way for me to install it without the root PW. The user name was set up as a generic user, called aplus or a+plus but nothing in a text file anywhere for a root pw. Any help would be great thanks.
