To enter single-user mode, reboot your computer. Then follow the steps given
i. At the boot loader menu, type [e] to enter into editing mode.
ii. You will be presented with a boot entry listing. Look for the line that
looks similar to the following:
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-x.y ro root=/dev/hda2
Press the arrow key until this line is highlighted and press [e].
iii. Press the Spacebar once to add a blank space, then add the word
"single" to tell GRUB to boot into single-user Linux mode.
Press [Enter] to make the editing change take effect.
iv. You will be brought back to the edit mode screen.
From here, press [b] and GRUB will boot single-user Linux mode.
After it finishes loading, you will be presented with a shell prompt
similar to the following:
v. You can now change the root password by typing
bash# passwd root
You will be asked to re-type the password for verification. Once you are
finished, the password will be changed. You can then reboot by typing reboot
at the prompt; then you can log in to root as you normally would.
I installed Redhat liinux 9.0 with GRUB as boot loader. The problem is I
forget the "root" password. Tell me how to recover the "root" password.
