Question Changine the super user password


I would like to change the password for the super user but can't find it when I bring up the section in yast2 here the user are.

I remember creating the su password when I first installed this but don't know where to change it now.

Using Suse 9.2

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Do you use su or sudo? If you use su, just open the terminal, log in as root, and type passwd
