Redhat 9 root login password

I started to install Redhat 9 on a Compaq Proliant 6500 server and it worked without a problem. At least until I went back in the set up the configuration network and it asked for my password. It keeps looking for the root password. I thought I gave it the root user id and password at start up. Because that was all I had.
Anybody knows how to reset the root password in Linux redhat 9.0
much appreciated

in read the part about runlevel then go to the section on changing the root password, even though its a fedora FAQ it still might work...
