Login as root on LIVE CD? (w/o HD installation)
I searched around, and could not find the answer to my specific question...
Does anyone here know how to log in as the root user in Knoppix 3.9?
I know how to use "sudo" in the console, I just need access to files only user ROOT has from within Konsole. I have changed the password for user ROOT, but when I try to log in as ROOT from the root shell, it asks me for the user name, I type root, and it tells me it's invalid. Note: I've been doing all of this from within Knoppix 3.9.
By default, the entire system is logged in as user KNOPPIX, but I need to be logged in as ROOT, because it is vital to what I am trying to do, and I cannot do it without a user interface.
