Trying to add passwd to HardHat


My company is using HardHat Rev 1.2 as an embedded server. As originally installed, the OS requires no login or password; the user is logged in as root automatically. I have tried implementing passwd and login, but I keep missing different potions of software. Because this is an embedded solution, memory is limited. Can anybody tell me the simplest way to implement passwords on this system?

Thanks a bunch,

Not sure if this is what you are trying to do but ~ Logout compeletly and adduser then passwd. This will allow you to login with an id other than root.

Unhappy

The problem is that this is an embedded server running a very stripped down version of Linux HardHat -- there is no login or passwd functionality...I need to add it. All the documentation out there assumes that login and passwd are available after installation - they don't explain how to add it after the fact.
