SuSE 9.1 Pro Root Password

This has probably been asked, but I haven't seen anything. How do you change the Root Password on SuSE 9.1 pro? I've looked and can't find anything. Please help. I'm a first time SuSE user and typed the password wrong. The second time, I managed to type it the same way. I know what it is, but I want to change it.

Thanks in Advance.
