    Did you do this because you forgot the root password? If so, now you would type in passwd, then enter your password at the prompt.
    I would then recommend writing the password down. Also with grub the line you added should have been single, as linux single is for Lilo. Then reboot.
    Also note that this post is in the wrong forum.
