Not sure what the question is here - have you forgotten your root password? - if so, boot into single user mode via:

For LILO:

At the LILO prompt, when it says "boot:" type:

linux single

and then type

passwd

you can create a new root password here.

(however - if you just want to change your root password normally then su to root user in an xterm and type passwd)
