Help on commands
Authored by: shadowmyst on Jul 29, '04 09:58:08PM

i am running 10.3.4 and i did not do the initial installation on this machine.. I have an account with admin rights.. but as far as root i dont know the password.. when i try the above steps it a doesnt go to localhost% is goes to root# when i enter the commands as stated it mounts the drive successfully and it also initializes through the SystemStartup then on the passwd root it just drops the carrier down and provides no information to enter the new password or any errors.. just allow to type continuously until hitting ctrl-c at which you return to the prompt.. please help
