morphix hd install


i can't ask this question at morphix.org cos for some reason i can't post on their forum!

Basically I am doing an HD install of morphix 0.4.1 light gui, after i install none of the passwords i chose work. found a post on the forum that said try:

Linux init=/bin/sh

at boot and use

passwd

but i got command not found (?)

it also suggest doing

/morphix/gtkinstaller/morphixinstaller -d

and posting the output at the forum but as i said i can't post so am posting here!

basically i can see the problem already. when the installer asks me to set root pasword i get:

chpasswd: command not found

the command the installer gives is:

chroot /mnt/target sh -c "echo \"root:password\" | chpasswd"

i dunno what happens after that cos i accidently quit the installer! but that seems to be quite a clear cause of the root password not getting set!

any ideas?

bump - surely someone must have a clue about this or direct someone who does here? I gave up but it seems pretty serious!

I have the same problem with LightGUI 0.4-1 when I do HD install. I like it so I guest I just use the CD Live and use window xp the rest of the time. The only thing I wish is I could save my data. I try a floppy disk it didn't work. Next I'm going try JumpDrive 256mb If I find one to buy.
