    forgotten root password


    All right. This was kid of dumb. I was setting up linspire for a friend, and we set a root password, and I managed to forget it. I know in grub there is a way to boot in to single user mode, so I can reset the password. How is this done?

    Thanks,

    To do this with GRUB, you have to edit your Linspire's entry and add a "1" at the end of the line which contains your kernel path, options, etc.
