Here's how to reset your root password: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_t..._root_password

The typical way to use a pendrive is that, when you insert it, it shows up in your File Manager. It may be that you are unable to do this without knowing the root password, is that the problem here?

HOWEVER since Fedora 14 is obsolete and unsupported, I recommend you do a fresh reinstall of the current Fedora 17, or a beginner-friendly distro such as Linux Mint.

fedora DOSE NOT USE "sudo"
it IS NOT set up
and might NOT even be installed

fedora uses
" su " and "su -"


also tharkik
Before you do ONE MORE THING on the DEAD fedora 14
download the CURRENT version- Fedora 17 and INSTALL THAT !!!
fedora has a VERY VERY short life span. Only 13 months
and releases a NEW version EVERY 6 months

sudo has been on Fedora for some time and his brother may have configured it for him. was a thought.
