you forgot your root password before setting up a user account?
Wait, does this mean you've used it at all?/

Try booting to a liveCD (CD1 will work) and that should give you root access.

the slackware install CD1 acts as a live CD, you don't have that?

I don't think I quite understand your situation. You can't have had it installed long else you'd not forget your root password, and you'd have a user account.

But you don't have the install CDs either?

Nope, the password is encrypted.

On the other hand what user account are you logging into via ssh?

Appaerently, he doesn't have a user account, doesn't know his root password.

This would suggest that he's NEVER logged onto his computer.

I find this highly suspicious and he's probably trying to script-kiddie into a box that he doesn't actually own

ESPECIALLY since he just "happens" to not have his slackware CDs (despite having just installed slackware (or else he'd have used his root password and got himself a user account).
