Loaded Linux, lost login ID and password for superuser? How can I recover?
 
How can I create a new superuser login ID and password or recover the one I created? Is there an easy way?

This thread called Lost Root Password has some satisfied customers.

yes there is.

1. Boot a system, any system.
2. Mount your drive.
3. Chroot into it.
4. run passwd

Thank you for your help.

I was able to get a new password assigned and am back in business.

Thanks again.
